Our online market is currently closed. Our next online market will open shortly.
Welcome to the Megginch Castle NeighbourFood Market in the heart of the Carse of Gowrie - the beautiful lowlands peppered by orchards, soft fruit farms, arable and rich pasture land, stretching between Perth and Dundee, bordered by the Silvery Tay to the South and sheltered by the Braes of the Carse to the North.
When I returned from visiting the first NeighbourFood Market, which was set up in Cork in 2018, I realised that the Irish have not lost their daily and weekly market mentality for buying fresh, local and seasonal food.
We seem to have totally lost our connection with what we eat and how it is grown or made, what time of year it is in season and importantly how much time and love from local farmers goes into producing our food.
NeighbourFood crucially provides the means to recreate the link between us and local farmers, crofters, growers, bakers, makers and creators. Products from further afield, like chickpeas and olive oils(all grown and produced with the same NeighbourFood ethos) are also available on the NF market to give you as wide a range of goods as you would find at a traditional market.
Buying foods at local markets reconnects you directly with what you eat, you have total traceability with minimal food miles and packaging and maximum nutrient density. Have a rummage through the internet and discover where your local market is! There is an excellent Neighbourfood Market in Blairgowrie, but we are taking a break here at Megginch and will let you know when we start up again.
