Fare magazine is a bi-annual print publication exploring city culture through the intersections of food, history, and community. Each issue is guided by local writers, photographers and illustrators who give expert insight as well as a taste of the creative aesthetic.


This issue, sent out to Stack subscribers in July 2019, explores editor Ben Mervis’ hometown of Glasgow (the cover shot was taken in his favourite local pub).


In this issue:


  • The traditional Hogmanay black bun
  • Glasgow’s association with world-famous figures like Nelson Mandela and JFK
  • The tailor who played in The Beatstalkers, one-time rivals to The Beatles
  • More stereotypically Scottish treats including Tunnock’s caramel wafers, Irn Bru and Buckfast


Issue four of Fare is also available in the Stack shop.
