The Boxsmall Market is an architecturally designed market made up of contemporary cubic micro-stores, showcasing the very best of Scottish products including cutting edge design, clothing and crafts. Exhibitors include Meredith Jewellery, Snow Paw and The Knight’s Vault. Fresh food stalls will offer everything from seasonal Scottish fare to international street food. Food traders include Jones & Son Bespoke BBQs, Frisky Froyo, Shrimpwrecked and Pizza Geeks.

Shona Donaldson, festival director, says: “We are really excited to be back in Edinburgh for our third year running. Not only do we have a fantastic mix of local food and craft traders, but our new putting course, Waverly Green, means there are even more fun activities for families to enjoy.

“We wanted to create a space where families can come for an exciting day out - parents can sit back and relax while their children enjoy some bouncy fun in the Bubbleparc, take part in a unique and fun game of putting with the whole family, dine on delicious street food and pick up unique souvenirs. There is something for everyone at Boxsmall Market and plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained all day long.”

Calum Hill, Scottish amateur golfing champion, says: “I’m delighted to help launch Boxsmall Market’s new putting green and teach the kids a few putting techniques. It’s not often you find a putting green such as this in the city centre! I’ll definitely be coming back with my friends and family and putting them through their paces.”
