Neighbourgood food market Edinburgh: First look at Capital's first-ever contactless open-air market in Stockbridge
Edinburgh’s first contactless open-air market opened its doors today (Wednesday, July 15) – and we’ve taken a look inside.
The Neighbourgood Market, located in the grounds of The Grange Club, is a new street food and restaurant offering in the stunning open-air grounds in Stockbridge, providing a safe platform for local businesses and traders to sell products.
The family-friendly market is located on a section of the grounds at The Grange Club, with dedicated access via Portgower Place.
The market has attracted some popular Edinburgh-based brands – including Bross Bagels, Mana Poke Bowls, Mimis Bakery, Brew Lab, Innis and Gunn and Edinburgh Gin.
Other vendors on site include Casa Roble, Lucas Ice Cream, The Peruvian, Screaming Peacock, Rost, Mint, Caravan of Courage, Don't Tell Mama, Lost Orchards, Good Brothers Wine Bar and Prosecco Boys.
Tribe Yoga will also be hosting a range of outdoor classes on site as soon as permitted.
Operators have also secured partnership agreements with Izettle and Deliveroo to provide contactless payment and pre-order systems for the market.
Neighbourgood Market offers a 100% contactless site, and one-way demarcated walkways and designated circular seating zones for small groups of up to five people to gather and socialise are in place.
Toilet facilities, managed in accordance to Scottish Government guidelines, are available on site to customers.
The duo behind The Neighbourgood Market concept, Preston Mommsen and Edward Wilson, said: “We are really excited to bring this fresh and uplifting concept to the Stockbridge and wider Edinburgh community.
"There’s no doubt that it’s been a tough few months for everyone during lockdown – we’re delighted that we are now able to provide a vibrant platform for people to socialise safely once again, all while enjoying some of Edinburgh’s finest food and drink offering.”
The Neighbourgood Market will run weekly until the end of August, Wednesday to Sunday.
The trading hours will be 12 noon until 7pm.
