The Chapelton Farmers Market
This Sunday, Chapelton will host its very first farmers market bringing a wide variety of Scottish producers to the town to showcase their offerings.
From delicious food to bespoke Scottish gifts and skincare products, there will be something for everyone at Sunday’s market. To give you an idea of what you can expect to see on the day we’ve provided a rundown of each of the stalls attending and what they will have on offer.
The Principled Pig
Serving up mouth-wateringly delicious pork, the Principled Pig a small-scale, family run smallholding will be catering to the needs of hungry passers-by. Only producing low-volumes of meat from a small number of animals, the Principled Pig ensure they deliver the highest standard of animal welfare which they believe contributes to the incredible flavour and tenderness of the pork.
After working up an appetite wandering round the many stalls you can rest assured your savoury cravings will be sorted out by the Principled Pig.
The Bread Guy Bakery
Offering freshly baked breads made from only the finest ingredients, The Bread Guy Bakery will be on hand to provide a wide selection of breads, pastries and Paninis.

Cheese lovers take note, the Devenick Dairy stall will host a flavoursome array of homemade cheeses from the family farm just south of Aberdeen.
The Groat family who run the Devenick Dairy have always been cheese lovers, with a history of cheesemaking in the family. When they decided to take on a new adventure, cheesemaking seemed like the obvious choice for them so in 20016 the Devenick Dairy was born.
As well as their unique collection of cheeses, they will also be bringing cheesecake, oatcakes, pork and veal.
