Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th January see us join Edinburgh’s newest market at The Biscuit Factory, Leith.

The guys behind The Edinburgh Larder and Edinburgh Food Social launched the market in December. The event was a huge success and will now be taking place monthly until March.

We are really pleased to have been asked along and will be taking Bella, our food truck,  as well as a stall in the market itself for you to buy some of our fab venison and a couple of our wee pies (they’re to die for!!).

As the market’s indoors it’s a great opportunity to browse some of the regions best independent producers whatever the weather and with live music and a kids play area it’s sure to be a great day out for all the family.

We will be serving a host of tasty treats in the truck from our ever popular Pulled Venison Rolls with Tangy Slaw to our traditional and uber-tasty Highland Beef Stovies that always go down a storm. We have a slightly unusual offering as a special for this event so come along and give it a try, you’ll love it….and we’re not kidding!!

Here’s a little bit about what the Edinburgh Food Social is all about……….

The team behind Edinburgh Larder have set up a social enterprise which aims to make local food more accessible by working with schools and communities to develop cooking skills. Thanks so much to everyone who helped us reach our £10k target on Kickstarter to buy a food truck – watch this space for more information on our plans and please request to join our Facebook page!

The team behind the Edinburgh Food Social want to bring the benefits of using local food into schools and communities across Edinburgh by taking a food truck around the city and beyond to showcase what can be done with local food, all year round. They believe that everyone in Scotland deserves to have access to the great produce we have on our doorstep and the means to cook with it if they want to.

They hope to inspire children to cook with local produce and become involved in planning the menus in their schools. The team hope to help people of all ages and backgrounds develop their cooking skills and create nutritionally balanced meals using local, seasonal food.

Eleanor Cunningham, owner of the Larder and founder of Edinburgh Food Social says using local produce “means there’s a real connection between the supplier and the food we serve. The producers in Scotland work incredibly hard to develop really fantastic ingredients which are at the core of everything we cook – we’d like more people to have the opportunity to use these ingredients.”

Edinburgh Food Social have teamed up with the Biscuit Factory to offer an affordable monthly food & craft market. The first took place in November 2016 and was an unmitigated success! You can register interest for such events in future via the Facebook group below.

Our first market in November was an unmitigated success with over 4,000 visitors. The second will be larger with more space to wander, a larger area for kids to play, buggy parking, great live music, more seating and even more food producers.
The event will again be hosted by our friends at Leith’s Biscuit Factory on Anderson Place.
You can spend as much time as you like mooching around and soaking up the atmosphere with fantastic food and craft on offer. There’s a suggested donation of £2 on the door with all event profits going to Edinburgh Food Social.
We raised £2,000 from our November market which will help us teach cooking skills and provide good food to those who need it most. The market is on both Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th of January from 12-6pm.
