Leith dog friendly market reveals festive plans for Christmas

PITT Street Market is set to embrace Christmas with a series of seasonal events to get everyone in the mood for the big day.

Christmas at The Pitt

Over four weekends, Saturdays and Sundays from 30 November to 22 December, the invitation from the street food specialists is to 'Have Yourself a Very Merry Pitt-Mas.'

Keeping it community-based this festive season, Edinburgh’s favourite year-round street food and tipple market will be decking the halls of their indoor and heated warehouse, mulling locally brewed wines and ciders and serving up home-grown festive scran, all accompanied by live music and classic Christmas movies on the big screen.

Described as a 'chance for folk to head down to their local street food market, hang out with pals and have a wee festive time with Christmassy drinks, scran and tunes' the fun kicks off on Saturday 30 November with the arrival of the Pitt-Mas Market, which will run every Saturday and Sunday until 22 December.

Alongside weekly guest food vans in the courtyard, Pitt St staples Ròst will have Christmas stuffing bao buns, festive pheasant burgers and aromatic Asian Brussels sprouts on the menu, while Barnacles & Bones will be dishing up a full Christmas roast wrapped in a Yorkshire wrap, plus a shellfish seafood chowder special. For dessert, try s’mores from Moo Pie.

Musically there will be no Mariah or Bublé, instead expect live music from some of The Pitt’s best-loved acts such as The Banana Sessions, DJ Dolphin Boy and Main Ingredient.

You can also source a locally grown Nordmann Fir or Fraser Fir Christmas tree at the market.

So, if you can't face braving the crowds on Princes Street, grab your pals, bring the dog and head down for some warming Christmas pints and festive times in the heart of Leith.

Entry to Pitt Street Market is £2, kids welcome till 9pm free of charge. Opening hours are Saturdays, noon-10pm, Sundays, noon-6pm
