Description

Hello! It’s no surprise that street markets have a special place in people’s hearts. There is a truly unique atmosphere at our markets in Edinburgh because our traders care about their customers and take pride in their products.

We offer everything you’d expect from your local market: delicious street food, fresh produce, artisan cakes and sweets, and a chance to get to know the people behind the products. As a social enterprise we also invest in projects that help local people.

So come on down and say “Hello”. We’ll be here every week.

We specialise in organising markets in Scotland’s capital city. As well as our own regular markets we also rent out stall equipment and lend our expertise to events, such as the Heels on Wheels cycling festival.

If you’re thinking of organising an event with stalls and need a hand, get in touch.

Our staff are SIA and First Aid trained.

Edinburgh Markets was launched in August 2011 as a social enterprise. Our aim is to incubate new businesses and encourage the entrepreneurial spirit.

We are committed to reinvesting part of our profits from stall rent into projects that benefit the community, with a focus on the environment and helping local people.

We have partnered with The Action Group and Ingeus, to provide placement opportunities for people with learning disabilities and those who have been long-term unemployed. This helps people develop the confidence and skills they need to find meaningful employment.

We are also working with South Leith Parish Church to donate food to people in need who may have experiences of homelessness.
