I'm Gillian, a local pig farmer from Strathblane and I've been supplying the Glasgow & Stirling Food Assemblies since Summer 2016. I LOVE the model so much that I've brought one to my community in Milngavie!
I describe it as an online farmers market.I love it for so many reasons: It has the convenience of ordering from home; all of the produce has super-low food miles; there's no wastage as producers only bring pre-ordered produce; it is a fair system for farmers and producers; it helps the local economy. What's not to love???
Every week you'll find great products direct from local farms and artisan producers - vegetables, fruit, meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, honey & jam, sourdough breads, cakes, pies, sushi, ready meals, vegan produce, pantry items and seasonings, craft beers plus much, much more - amazing produce you may not have found easy to source in the past!
Order and pay for all of your goods online then come and meet the producers at our weekly Assembly on Friday at The Fraser Centre in Milngavie (opposite Costa!), or collect from my farm in Strathblane anytime on Saturdays. There is also a delivery service available. You can order as little or as often as you choose.
Enjoy a new way to eat well while supporting local agriculture and minimising food waste. Plus, over 90% of what you spend stays in the LOCAL economy!
