Ayr farmers’ market set to expand

THE farmers who banded together to sell produce direct to the consumer at Ayr have their eyes set on expansion to sites at Kilmarnock, Irvine and Glasgow.

Athough just one farmers market has been held at Ayr, with two more planned for this month and next, the venture is already seen as a success.

Discussion are taking place to hold a weekly event in Kilmarnock and Irvine.

Other farmers markets have proved viable in Perth, Aberdeen and Forfar.
