Great local produce - and tasty free samples!

Not the biggest market around - but certainly has some of the tastiest produce, and most of it is either grown or produced relatively locally too, which is an added bonus. Most of... read more

This was a fairly enjoyable experience. Not a fun 10/10 but if you are bored then you could go here. My girls did not like it so much and they said they had better things to do. I had fun though.

This place is like any other market. I would urge you to look for local food specials. Also a good place to check out the local produce and bump into local folks and check out if you understand their accent !

A small market just close to the castle, a nice place to taste local food and local drinks, also some local handcrafts are sold here.

A great Saturday Morning.......although small, this is a fun market. We have been several times. A good offering of veg, cheeses, meats, etc. A couple bakeries usually there, too. And a few places to have a sandwich. One place, don't recall the name, sells good coffee. Often there is some live music. Here's an Extra! - Make it even better... More

I would recommend a trip to castle terrace market each Saturday. As the weeks have went on I've gotten to know the trades and their products. Very knowledgeable and warming traders who are willing to talk to you and are happy to do a deal. Great for a weekly shop or a wander with a hot chocolate.

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.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
