Bowhouse Spring Market Weekends

9th/10th March, 13th/14th April, 11th/12th May

10am – 4pm, Free of Charge

A new calendar of events for 2019 has been launched by Scotland’s most innovative food hub with the popular Bowhouse Market Weekends set to resume in March with a series of spring themed events.

The first of the free-to-attend monthly Bowhouse Market Weekends of 2019 will take place in March, with further dates planned for the rest of the year. The spring line-up of markets, complete with producers market, street food, live music and hands-on activities, will take place between 10am-4pm on:

Saturday 9th – Sunday 10th March

Saturday 13th – Sunday 14th April

Saturday 11th – Sunday 12th May

Bowhouse will welcome spring with a New Beginnings themed Market Weekend on the 9th and 10th of March. Bowhouse’s resident producers will be joined in the covered market area by some of Scotland’s best food and drink stalls, selling everything from meat and seafood, to cheese and charcuterie. While charity partner Marie Curie will have a host of spring activities, including daffodil planting, for everyone to get involved with.

On 13th and 14th April the Bowhouse Market Weekend will be a celebration of Easter, with a focus on fish and shellfish. Scotland boasts some of the best seafood in the world, and local fisheries and producers from the West Coast to the East Neuk of Fife will take centre stage at Bowhouse’s food market, with some seaside themed activities from charity partner Anstruther Improvements.

At May’s market, Bowhouse will mark the end of spring and the beginning of warmer weather, with a Market Weekend themed around the soft fruits for which Fife is famous, on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th May. Expect plenty of fresh produce from berry fields on Bowhouse’s doorstep in Fife and beyond.

As at previous Market Weekends, the markets will also feature a street food quarter, selling an ever-changing roster of the most innovative and delicious food and drink to visitors all weekend, accompanied by a soundtrack of live music. Bowhouse Market Weekends are free to attend.

Bowhouse opened on the Balcaskie Estate in the East Neuk of Fife in summer 2017 as a makers hub for local food producers. Since then the space has grown and is now home to eight independent food businesses permanently based there, working to provide the missing link between farm and fork; as well as attracting thousands of visitors to its monthly Market Weekends.
