Bowhouse Market to open with ‘green’ theme

Green is the theme at the next Bowhouse Market Weekend, which opens its doors in Fife next month.

Bowhouse Market, St Monans.

Artisan food producers will be selling locally grown fruit and vegetables as well as activities which will give visitors an insight into the workings of a farm at the East Neuk on Saturday June 8 and Sunday 9.

As part of LEAF Open Farm Sunday, the Bowhouse team will lead guided tours where visitors will learn about the organic cereal grains being grown in the fields around Bowhouse Farm. Children and adults alike will come face to face with farm animals in the courtyard area, while the RSPB will leads tours of the estate to spot local wildlife, including the endangered corn bunting.
