A vending machine selling fresh vegetables has been unveiled in a Dundee shopping centre.

The machine in the Overgate Centre offers bags of locally grown potatoes as well as vegetable boxes containing onions, carrots, swedes and eggs.

Farming partners and cousins Euan and Peter Grewar recently launched the first 24-hour vegetable vending machine outside their Perthshire farm.

They are now actively looking for more new locations.

A seasonal variation including parsnips and Brussels sprouts is also being planned for Christmas.

Euan Grewar said the success of their machine at the East Ardler farm, off the A94 Forfar to Coupar Angus road, had inspired the move into the city.

He said: "Our emphasis is to provide quality produce from the local area.

"The potatoes will have been grown in either Perthshire or Angus, the carrots at our next door neighbour's farm, the swedes from the Carse of Gowrie and the parsnips, sprouts and eggs from both Tayside and Fife."

A third machine is also being installed at Balmossie Brae just outside Dundee.
