There's nearly always a good selection of fresh and tasty food available at the market....as well as a good mix of retailers. Some retailers also have an "order on line, collect at market" option to reduce the possibility of a wasted trip when they maybe don't have what you're looking for - due to stands not being full sized shops...

We noticed a sign advertising the Saturday farmer's market elsewhere in the city, and even though our Saturday was cold and rainy, we braved the weather and walked to the market. When we got there, we were sorry to be tourists and not locals - such gorgeous, lovely food, and we didn't have a proper kitchen to store or make... More

Edinburgh farmers market is a superb spot to get some great food that has been locally produced/sourced. Sitting by Edinburgh castle and not far from Princess Street this is a great spot for locals and visitors. Lots of tasty things to eat on site or to take home. Eh1 Edinburgh's guide to the best independent places recommends the farmers market.

Good choice of stalls, plenty to choose from, tends to be expensive compared to other farmers markets I have been to but this is probably due mainly to location. All very good quality though

I ate a cheese toastie that literally changed my life. It was the best thing I ate in my month in Europe (we went to Italy and France as well -- didn't even come close). I don't know which stall this was, but yes you want caramelised onion marmalade and yes you want a brownie with that. My girlfriend bought... More

This was our first visit to the market, wish we hadn't been going somewhere after because it meant we couldn't buy everything we would have liked. (Next time the cool bag is coming with us). Loads to choose from, not just meat, fish, cheese, and fruit! Every Saturday - definitely worth a visit.

Having just retired back to Edinburgh, we passed here 'just for a look' on an early January typical grey Saturday morning. Negotiated with a 'Parking Attendant' (They actually speak to you in Edinburgh!) re leaving the car nearby for just a couple of minutes and nipped across. Due to the time of year it was smaller than normal. We bought... More
