Producing the Goods

One of the major boosts to Langholm as a result of the burgh charter signed in 1621 was the right to host a regular market. So how apt it is that 400 years later, a monthly celebration of our final local produce has returned to the Market Place in the heart of the town.

Love Langholm Local Market, the brainchild of local entrepreneur and textile designer Emma Duncan, has brought a real buzz back to the heart of Langholm on the first Saturday of each month, offering everything from plants and pottery to beef pies and locally-crafted beer. The event has proven popular not just among locals, who have a new-found appreciation for what’s produced on our doorstep following months of Covid restrictions, but also stallholders, many of whom have now had to join a waiting list just for the chance to display their wares!

Our hope and expectation is that the market – and its reputation – will continue to grow in the months and years to come, and that many more people will experience a true taste of Langholm.
