Balerno Farmers Market & Balerno Busk, Saturday 8th October

Balerno Farmers Market will be taking place once more on Saturday 8th October. As it’s the time of year for the Balerno Music Festival, the Balerno Busk is running alongside the market this month. We’re looking for some fabulous musicians and singers to take part. If you’d like to enter please get in touch. Soloists and groups of all ages are very welcome.
