Call for farmers markets group

JIM Fairlie, a shepherd who is behind four successful Perth farmers markets, wants to establish an association to set up more markets across Scotland.

Mr Fairlie says farmers markets play a vital role in re-establishing the relationship between producer and consumer.

A Scottish National Association of Farmers Markets could also play a vital political role in lobbying for the interests of farmers, he adds.
