Festive Faldonside Farmers Market


All stall holders who are able to make it on Sunday will endeavour to do so, but they are also just being made aware of this news. Whilst the change in plan is disappointing the team at Faldonside Farmers Market are working extremely hard behind the scenes to ensure it is still a success on Sunday. Thank you for your support and understanding, apologies for any inconvenience caused.


As we all know small businesses are the heartbeat of our community so we urge you to consider shopping locally this Christmas.  Why not start by enjoying local artisan produce on Sunday 28th November 10am-3pm at the festive Faldonside Farmers Market taking place at Melrose Rugby Club.

Faldonside Festive Market
Melrose Rugby Club
28th November 2021
10am- 3pm

In aid of Borders Children’s Charity, proudly sponsored by Paton & Co Estate Agents.

Make sure you have the 27th November in your diary as there will be an abundance of excellent local stall holders selling artisan, fresh produce including homemade waffles & crepes, delicious pies, locally produced jams and breads, award winning liqueurs and Spanish tapas, just to name a few! There will also be lots of creative, local individuals and businesses selling their products which promise to delight loved ones this Christmas. Scottish artist Anna Wright will be selling her beautifully drawn animals on cards, mugs and more, there will be candles on sale from Storm Coast Candles, natural skin care products from Raven Botanicals, eco drinks bottles from Flasket and gorgeous festive wreaths from Ginger House Garden, plus many many more. This really is a market not to be missed!

Faldonside Farmers Market was conceived by Posy and Pete Maitland-Carew, who live at Faldonside, and this creative and talented couple had the vision of hosting an artisan farmers market that would showcase some of their favourite local businesses. It’s been an immense amount of work for Posy and Pete to bring this event to reality but Posy says she has very much enjoyed coming across all the wonderful and exciting producers, and of course trying the incredible produce!

Paton & Co are now sponsoring their third Faldonside Farmers Market commented “We are delighted to be able to sponsor Faldonside Farmers Market, 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, especially as the market supports 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.”

Pete & Posy have worked tirelessly to grow the market taking feedback from the last two markets onboard. When access prevented the Festive market taking place at Faldonside Farmhouse, Posy & Pete were inundated with kind proposals from market attendees offering to help, attendees wanted to ensure that the Faldonside Farmers Market could continue. Posy comments “We have loved having the last two markets at Faldonside, but we are very excited about its move to Melrose Rugby Club for the festive market on 28th November. We have built up a lovely following and have found the last two markets incredibly rewarding, particularly when we have able to raise money for The Borders Children’s Charity at the same time. This next market will see a number of new and returning stall holders, there promises to be a great selection of varied stalls ensuring that there will be plenty of desirable products and artisan produce to choose from on the day!”
