Grab a foodie delight at Arbroath’s first ever Fish and Farmers market which will be supported by local business and community groups on June 27.

Supporting the line-up of delicious local delicacies will be a host of entertainments from line dancers to displays from Warehouse Gym and Best Defence.

The demos will give you a chance to let the all-day fish tasting from the Bellrock go down as well as some intriguing “Sea Tucker Trials” set up by the Old Boatyard.

There will be a craft fair in Signal Tower courtyard as well as a bouncy castle and slides for the young ones.

There will be a military presence at the fair with a stall from the Royal Marines Association and military displays as well as a lifeboat launch and rescue.

Aiming to keep this market focus on healthy food and living, organiser Kevin Smith said: “We are still looking for one big food van, preferably serving healthy food, a coffee/drinks vendor, and anyone else who would like a fresh produce stall.

“We would also ask that if there are some local farmers/producers unable to take a stall on the day but willing to participate by way of donating auction prizes, to please contact Kevin Smith on 07847 188143, or email Gavin Nicol at

“We are also looking to get in touch with a sea cadet band or anyone who would like to perform as there’s still lots of room on stage and tips on getting hold of a PA and generator would be welcome.”
