As a food fanatic I couldn't miss this place. Every Saturday behind the castle the farmers market takes place serving and selling foods from local farms and produce. Amazing place if you want to try the local foods. If you are in Edinburgh on a Saturday this place cannot be missed.

love making regular visits to this great market . Quite small in comparison to many places I have visited but the quality of the products are great . Love the variety of meats and poultry as well as a great choice of locally grown veg . Fresh bread and locally made jams and chutneys can also be purchased.

Loved this market. Fantastic products with samples to try for nearly everything. The Apple punch is amazing so definitely try it. Head here for lunch and you won't be disappointed. This was our favourite find for the whole weekend.

Fabulous farmers market, friendly stall owners who are very informative about their stock. Locally sourced and beautifully fresh. I recommend getting a coffee and picking up a pastry whilst you walk around.

Been here a few times and never been disappointed yet --a lovely mixture of meats cheese and those lovely breads that are so unique ---some things seem a bit pricy --that will put people off--but you cannot beat real quality

We happened upon this market whilst visiting the castle. It is held on Saturdays and whilst not huge it has a very good range of food stalls, crafts and fruit and veg etc. we had the most amazing cheese toastie and brownie. It seemed well supported without feeling too crowded. If you are visiting the castle get here in time... More

It's only on Saturday hence, we planned our trip to Edinburgh in a way it meets the farmers' market day. It was only about 5 minutes walk to the market from the apartment we rented. There were not many stalls, around 20-30 but they had plenty of stuff like fresh locally grown vegetables, fresh sea products, meats, craft beers, handmade... More

We popped in over lunch time and our biggest problem was trying to decide what to eat because everything looked and smelled so good! There were very international options and the vendors were friendly and generous with samples. The three of us settled on Jamaican jerk chicken, pulled pork, and a falafel, although the poeia (sp?) smelled amazing, too We... More

it was nice visit and it is probably one of the most beautiful locations to any farmers' market anywhere. It is small, but some good stuff available and quite a selection of food to go and taste.
