Enjoy local artisan produce on Saturday 28th August 10am-3pm at Faldonside Farmers Market
We are delighted to be able to sponsor Faldonside Farmers Market, especially as this next market will be supporting The Borders Children’s Charity. A local charity that exists to help children aged 0-18, living in the Scottish Borders, by relieving poverty, sickness and distress and advancing education. With this in mind, Faldonside have have increased the amount of stalls to 35 so there will be plenty of artisan produce to choose from on the day!
With so many fantastic local stall holders we knew as soon as we heard about the event that we wanted to support and get involved. Getting to know local businesses and sharing insights with our buyers and sellers is at the heart of what we do. It felt like a perfect fit.
Below we have included some information on the stall holders attending the second Faldonside Farmers Market on 28th August 2021, 10am-3pm.
Storm Coast Candles
We know it’s a Food & Drinks market here at Faldonside but Posy & Pete felt this wonderful candle company @stormcoastcompany needed to be on the list. Lauren’s fantastic business is vegan friendly, selling small batch eco Soy Wax Candles with 100% essential oils. Inspired by the East coast of Scotland-who can resist a beautiful candle like this!! https://stormcoast.co.uk/
We can’t wait to pick up a few punnets of these mouth-watering berries at the market- all fresh from the fields!

Big thank you to Stretch Tent Scotland who provided one of their fabulous tents on the day to ensure that there was some cover, or indeed shade, depending on what the Scottish weather decides on the day! http://www.stretchtentsscotland.com/
There are loos at the market for use by attendees. There is also lots of space to sit and enjoy the ambience and the view. There will be some music to add to the atmosphere so we really hope that you have a great and comfortable visit to Faldonside whilst browsing the stalls. There was going to be a charge of £5 per vehicle which would have hopefully led to a substantial donation to the wonderful Borders Children’s Charity, but instead there will just be donations buckets on the day.
