NEWS: Scotland's first organic food festival

Next weekend the Soil Association Scotland presents an Organic Food Fair at The Old Fruitmarket (cracking venue) and nearby Glasgow Metropolitan College. There are going to be loads of stalls, and not just of the food variety. I may have to relent and get something from the Coco Chocolate stall, I'm very good when they appear at Edinburgh Farmers Market but it can't last, their stuff looks just so very tasty. Bellfield Organics will be there, we get some veg from them when they appear at the market. Black Isle Brewery is a favourite of my boyfriend and whilst I don't eat anything that Summer Isles Smokehouse produce (I'm vegetarian) I have been to their premises on holiday in stunning Achiltibuie and the fish-eaters in my family declared the smoked salmon to be delicious. They also sell smoked cheese from around the country so I may be able to pick up some yummy Grimbister from my home islands of Orkney.

Grassroots are providing the food up at the college, we ate at their cafe last night and it's got to be one of my favourite places to eat. Tasty organic food will also be available at the Fruitmarket.

That's enough to tempt us on to the train and over to Glasgow for the day, sounds like it's going to be a brilliant day.
