If you want food as fresh as it can be, visit the award-winning Edinburgh Farmers’ Market. The market takes place at Castle Terrace under the imposing backdrop of Edinburgh Castle. Over 55 specialist producers currently attend the market.
The majority of stallholders are primary producers, growing what they sell. A quarter offer meat products, including specialities such as venison and water buffalo. Organic beef, chicken, lamb and pork are also available. Other types of produce include fish (lobster in season), free-range eggs (including duck eggs), cheese, seasonal fruit & vegetables, pates, chillies and plants. In addition you’ll find producers who bake and prepare their own farm products. Guest producers provide specialities including organic beer, liqueurs, bread, chocolates and chutneys.
