Dumfries Farmers' Market

Held on the 1st Sunday of each month (Feb-Dec) 11am-3pm

A traditional farmers' market with artisan food and drink available to buy direct from the producer, located at the edge of Dumfries.

This very successful market has between 20 and 30 food stalls. There is a good variety of local food available at the easily accessed venue with plenty of free parking, just off the Dumfries bypass. Produce available includes locally produced meats, fish, cheeses, breads, baking, desserts, ice creams and sorbets, jams and preserves, chocolates, fruit and vegetables, fudge, beer and wine.

There's also a special Christmas Market, usually on the third Sunday in December.

What to see and do:

Dumfries, known as the Queen of the South, is the regional capital and as such boasts some superb restaurants and hotels serving tasty local produce alongside lashings of warm hospitality. Dumfries was the home of Scotland's National Bard, Robert Burns, and his fondness for the hospitality of this town is well known, indeed his favourite, The Globe Inn, gives a fascinating glimpse into his life whilst serving food and refreshments in its historic bar. In and around Dumfries are a host of family attractions that speak of the history and culture of the area - from the magnificent Caerlaverock Castle and Sweetheart Abbey; to the tremendous family fun of Mabie Farm Park, Drummuir Farm Ice Cream Parlour and Dalscone Farm Fun; to beautiful outdoor explorations at Mabie Forest and WWT Caerlaverock.

  • Walk in the footsteps of Robert Burns and tuck into hearty good food and a dram or two
  • Visit the historic Camera Obscura housed in an old windmill tower overlooking the town
