Products are locally produced and customers can find everything they need to stock their cupboards from Arran cheese, which is a handmade slow matured creamy cheddar cheese, to Nethergate Larder and their range of beef, lamb and pork all naturally reared at their farm. You might even discover something new such as Winston Churchill’s wild Scottish venison.
There are also some unique products, which you might not expect to see, and probably didn’t even know such things were produced around Loch Lomond, like Lomond Chilli’s varied range of chilli sauces to suit everyone. For those visitors with a sweet tooth, there are plenty of tasty treats from the likes of The Ochil Fudge Pantry, Threepwood Fayre, Crystal Shortbreads, and Fiona Brown Home baking. It’s not only foodstuff you will find at the Loch Lomond Shores Farmers Market, it also boasts handcrafted cold processed vegan soaps and cleansing products from Caurnie Soaperie, and Gourmet Dog Treats which are made free from gluten and wheat plus lactose free milk and cheese.
Plus many more unique items!

Balloch is only a short drive from any of Cooper Cottages self-catering holiday cottages and a trip to the Farmers Market would make a good family day out while staying in the area.
