THE FIRST Taste of Angus Festival went down a treat according to organisers as local people flocked to Angus Farmers’ Market on Saturday.

The theme of Saturday’s event at Forfar Mart was Angus produce.

And over 30 stalls at the market featured goods grown, made, harvested or reared in the area, including berries and vegetables, freshly-baked breads and cakes, tempting sweets, local meat and fish and, of course, Arbroath Smokies.

Many of the shoppers who visited the market on Saturday left laden with local goodies, including Carol Cargill from Arbroath.

She said: “I’ve bought cheese, bannocks, lemon curd, chutneys and sausages – all from Angus.

“I’m very glad I came along.”

Iain R. Spink also took along his traditional smoke barrel, providing market-goers with the chance to purchase freshly-smoked Arbroath Smokies and smoked trout.

“People are only too keen to try local produce and the A Taste of Angus Festival has brought to attention just how good our local produce is,” said Iain, who sells Arbroath Smokies at farmers’ markets and high-profile food events across Scotland.
