Home to the award-winning Perth Farmers' Market, which was the first of its kind in Scotland, Perthshire proudly boasts eight fantastic markets in various locations across the region.
And is any wonder? The area is renowned for its rich agricultural land, long history of distilling, and award-winning producers. From the mighty berry fields of Blair to honey from hillside hives, crystal clear gin from copper stills and beef fit for a king, here in the land of Scotland's larder it is all made possible.
As with all good, authentic Markets, behind the stalls you'll find the producers themselves - and they all love to chat about their wares! Ask about their processes, their attention to tiny details, where they farm and even the name of the cow your rib eye steak came from and they'll happily tell you.
