Welcome

Farmers' and community markets are the perfect way to discover and enjoy a wealth of delicious local food and drink and beautiful hand made crafts, all created by producers and craft makers living and working in Dumfries & Galloway.

Markets in Dumfries & Galloway are organised by volunteers and six markets across the region have been working together to share ideas and resouces, to help support the development of their markets.  This website is a portal for information about those six markets - Creetown, Dumfries, Langholm, Lockerbie, Moffat and Wigtown.

Find out more about these six markets by exploring this site and then connect with markets close to you on facebook for regular news on what's new and delicious at your local market.
