Dundee’s Monthly Farmers’ Market Set to Expand

Dundee council has invited companies to bid for a contract to develop the existing farmers market which could see the market expanding beyond its current offering of up to 25 stalls. It will not cost the council any money, with the successful bidder taking a percentage of the market’s income.

At present, Dundee’s monthly market offers produce from local firms including 71 Brewing, Arbroath Fisheries, gin distilled by Eden Mill and Arbroath ceramics firm Eeksie Peeksie. Despite handing over the reins to an external operator, the council has insisted local goods remain the flavour of the month.

The deal is guaranteed for a year, starting this April, with an option to continue for up to two years after that if it is deemed successful.

The market currently runs on the third Saturday of every month from February to December.
