Edinburgh Markets

“Flea markets are fun because they are the ultimate treasure hunt.” – Lara Spencer

Support locals by shopping local. Markets are the best place for authentic local produce.

The Edinburgh Farmers Market

Produce from around Scotland

In the shadow of Edinburgh Castle you will find the Edinburgh Farmers Market on Castle Terrace. It runs from 9 am until 2 pm each Saturday. Lloyd Grossman once called this award-winning market as unquestionably being one of the best in the world. With over 18 years’ experience this is Edinburgh’s longest running market. With over 35 stalls the farmers market has grown to showcase a wide range of locally made products.

Stockbridge Market

Trendy and hip

It may be small in size but it has a wide range of vendors. From locally made soap to fresh paella you will find something for just about everyone here. Tucked into Jubilee Gardens you will find the Stockbridge Market.  The market runs every Sunday from 10 am until 4 pm.

The Grassmarket

Market in the Grassmarket

Yes, that’s its name. It was originally called the Greater Grassmarket! It hosts both local and international stalls with a great lunch selection. The market runs every Saturday between 10 am and 4 pm and you will find a diverse range of venders here. Conveniently the market is just a short walk from the Edinburgh Farmers Market. This means you also have the opportunity to double up on your market visits. You will also find many great shops and pubs in the Grassmarket. We have to recommend a visit to Marys Milk Bar for the best ice cream in town.

Leith Farmers Market

Crafts, art, beer, food and souvenirs.

One of our favourite markets. It is located in the captivating Shore area of Leith, next to the picturesque Water of Leith river . ​The market runs every Saturday between 10 am and 4 pm. First Saturday of the month plays host to Vegan Quarter as well as usual traders. The perfect spot for local souvenirs and gifts.
