Whether you are staying in self-catering accommodation and want to stock your kitchen with tempting local flavours or you simply wish to purchase a snack or sweet treat as you explore the area, Edinburgh and the Lothians offers both regional and international flavours.
Browse the stalls at Edinburgh Farmers’ Market, a weekly event taking place every Saturday morning, and you will discover a great range of goods from meat to fish, chocolate and bread. You can also sit down and soak up the atmosphere with a warming cup of coffee or a hearty soup and ask the stallholders for some tips on how to cook up culinary delights.
Held on the last Saturday of each month, Haddington Farmers’ Market is another regional highlight which focuses upon artisan farms. Learn about the methods of growing and rearing before buying delicious homemade jams, fresh trout and salmon, local beef and lamb, to name just a few options. The Lothians also boasts markets in both Balerno and Howgate so you really are spoilt for choice.

Valvona & Crolla offers food products and wines from around the world with cakes and biscuits, champagne, pasta and oils while Ian Mellis boasts a mouth-watering array of Scottish cheeses in stores around the city. For European influences, The Manna House is a traditional French patisserie and coffee house and you will also find delicious bread and cakes at the German Falko Konditormeister.
