A Celebration of Local Food, Drink & Crafts in Eyemouth
Kirk Square Fair, now in its 6th year, is an annual, one-day event celebrating local food & drink, music and crafts – all that is unique, delicious and memorable about the Scottish Borders and the Berwickshire Coast, and in particular highlighting local businesses, people and produce.
The event begins at 9.30am with a Coffee Morning in the Mason’s Hall run by The Rotary Club of Eyemouth & District, with many stalls filled with local food & drink, gifts & crafts from 11 am to 4 pm in Kirk Square and along Manse Road. Throughout the day there will be busking and musical performances by Eyemouth High School Pupils and a number of Cookery Demonstrations taking place in Splash on Harbour Road thanks to Dave Hodson of Food Punks fame.
There will be storytelling taking place upstairs in Eyemouth Museum and Kids Crafts taking place in the Mason’s Hall from 12 pm until 3 pm, with lots of other fun activities for kids (and adults!) to take part in. Entry to the event is free, with voluntary donations from those attending and enjoying the event gratefully received to put towards event costs.

Beers, Wine, Kombucha & Gins. Cheese, Yoghurt & Ice Cream. Street Food, Burgers & Pies. Candles & Melts. Hand Knits, Furnishings & Fashions. Accessories & Jewellery. Plants. Cakes, Confectionery, Biscuits & Baking. Fun for all the family!
