Andy Waugh at Bonnie & Wild, said: “Edinburgh St James is the perfect location to launch Bonnie & Wild. We love the fact that it is rooted in its community but has a global outlook.

“Our vision is to bring the best of Scottish produce to the local community as well as visitors from further afield,” he said, “and we are so excited to create a platform for some of Scotland’s most interesting traders.

“We cannot wait to share more details about our plans and the traders we will be working with. And yes, we will be bringing our award-winning Venimoo burgers.”

The opening of the St James Quarter is one of the most highly anticipated events in Edinburgh after the St James Centre closed its doors for redevelopment back in 2016.

St James Quarter in Edinburgh is set to open its doors to the public next year.

The £1 billion St James Quarter will host around 85 shops, 30 restaurants, two hotels and a cinema.
