TO celebrate Visit Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink, New Lanark’s annual Spring Food and Gift Fair will highlight the best of local produce and include demonstrations by chefs and producers from across Scotland.

The fair will also include arts and crafts and gifts and accessories, along with demonstrations from traditional crafters and artisan producers. There will also be the chance to take part in some knitting and crafting workshops.

Emma McGuinness, New Lanark Events Officer said “Our Food and Gift Fairs are always very popular, and this year’s event is going to be extra special as it’s Visit Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink.

“We hope that lots of people make it down the Fair to try some delicious local produce, or pick up some beautiful hand-made crafts.

“From cider to candles and tablet to totes, there’s sure to be something on offer at the Fair to catch your eye!”

The Spring Food and Gift Fair itself will take place on Monday, May 4, from 10am to 4pm at the New Lanark Institute and forecourt.

Entry to the fair is free. You can get more information from the New Lanark website.
