Loch Lomond Flea Market
Currently ‘permanently closed’, but plans are afoot for a new market development. We will post when we know more.
Local food tastes better. Fact. Not only are crops picked at their peak AND on your table within 48hrs, but the farmer is there in person to oversee quality, unlike in those large, grey industrial sheds. Less time between harvest and the dinner table also means less nutrients are lost – another win for local food.
Then there are the food markets themselves. The hustle and bustle. Boxes overflowing with fresh produce, fine cuts of beef, sustainably sourced seafood and the delicious aroma of home baking.
Nothing beats looking into the eyes of the farmer themselves while shaking on a deal, or pointing out to friends the very field your dinner came from. This is personal. This is LOCAL. Happy shopping
