One of the Capital’s best known organic retailers will close after ten years serving the city.

Earthy Food and Goods Limited has been sold and will cease trading as of Saturday.

The independent grocery store, cafe and restaurant business has two remaining premises in the city - one in Portobello and the other on Ratcliffe Terrace, Causewayside.

An outlet at Canonmills Bridge closed in September 2017 following a two-year campaign to save the community cafe.

It was forced to shut its doors to make way for a controversial flat development after a petition to stop it going ahead failed.

Famed for seasonal soups, summer salads and a cosy atmosphere, Earthy blazed a trail as a company that championed sustainable produce and provided a hub for connecting local communities.

The firm also sold goods at the farmers markets at Castle Terrace and Dock Place, Leith.
