We came knowing that this Market has an international reputation to live up to and we were not disappointed. Each stall has excellent credentials for being there. There is a wide range of produce on offer. We were particularly taken with the bread stall and the stall of the fisherman from Arran. There were some interesting speciality stalls such as... More

I wanted to visit this market in search of local goods to taste and bring home. We were planning a full day of driving after we left and we bought things to eat for late breakfast and then later lunch. My friend had an angus beef sandwich, which he said was excellent. I had a bowl of porridge with jam... More

Coming from London we were really expecting something along the lines of one of the smaller Saturday markets here. However it was definitely worth a visit as it was small but every single stall was worth stopping at rather than trawling past loads of junk for a few trinkets. Really GREAT cheese and hommous (if you like hommous you should... More

To be honest the best think about the market are the colour as a tourist you are not going to buy loads of fruit and veg so go for the photo opportunites as this is really a market for locals

The Edinburgh Farmer's market is must visit attraction for any tourists in the area - we go every Saturday and thoroughly enjoy talking to producers and picking up fresh, local produce.

My wife,myself an out two dogs popped along to Edinburgh's Castle Terrace farmers market. It's very handy having he car park so close to the market,although it's very expensive to park but you can get your parking token validated at a stall in the market which gets a healthy discount.The stalls are varied offering a wide range of Scottish products...

A good selection of most things you'll expect to find in a decent market, some tasty things to try or purchase if you're looking for a snack (pastry, bread, cake, burgers, and sausages) and a lot of it a distinctly local variation, which is great if you're interested in Scottish foods!

If my accommodations in Edinburgh came equipped with a stove and fridge, then the Edinburgh Farmer's Market would have been more useful. It is small, and a lot of the stalls featured food that required preparation or non-food items which wouldn't fit in my suitcase to take home. However, at the far end of the market was Arran's Cheese Shop... More

Quite a small market but filled with local produce of good quality. Mainly food but you'll also find things like handmade soap. The stallholders are generally friendly and competent. Try an Angus burger or a shot of hot chocolate!

Thank Robert D

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.
