Huge Ocean Terminal car boot sale to continue every week in 2020 - here's what you need to know
Following a successful pilot period, the market will be a weekly fixture from this point on.
The organisers of a huge car boot sale that has been taking place at Ocean Terminal shopping centre have announced that it will continue on a weekly basis.
Following a five month trial period, the Sunday morning car boot will now carry on through 2020 on level F of the red car park near M&S, between 7.30am and 12.30pm.
The weekly market encourages consumers to recycle, reuse and upcycle.
Organisers say that around 100 sellers attend each week, and savvy shoppers have found hidden gems such as antiques and clothing.
Michelle MacLeod, Deputy Centre Manager, Ocean Terminal said: “The car boot sale has proved popular for both shoppers and sellers alike. As we all become more aware of the environment and our impact on it, more and more people are choosing to buy pre-loved goods, it’s great to see our community embracing this and we are grateful to Edinburgh City Council which has granted the license to trade for another year.
“We’re delighted to be able to continue to host the market for another 12 months and look forward to welcoming browsers and bargain hunters alike in 2020.”
The centre’s Subway store is supporting shoppers and sellers at the car boot sale by introducing earlier opening hours opening from 6.30am on sale days. Providing those who
attend the sale, whether buying, selling or browsing with the opportunity to purchase hot drinks and a bite to eat.
Seller access is granted on a first come first serve basis from 6am and is priced at £14 per slot or £25 for a double slot. Please note seller spaces are limited to 100. For up to date information, check www.facebook.com/oceanterminalcarbootsale
