Summer is officially here because today (May 17) marks the arrival of The Neighbourgood Market in Stockbridge, one of our favourite places to spend sunny days in Edinburgh. Located near Inverleith Park directly behind The Raeburn, the market has a food festival vibe where several food trucks will be selling their best street food alongside alcohol favourites and local bars.
The Neighbourgood Market will stay in the heart of Stockbridge between May 17 and July 23 this year, open from 12pm until 12am from Wednesday to Sunday every week. To access the market, just head onto Portgower Place towards Inverleith Park and you will see an entrance on the left-hand side if walking from The Raeburn.
The venture started in 2020 as a means to social distancing outdoors, yet it has proven to be such a success among the community, it (thankfully) stayed for good.
In previous years, the entry used to be free on weekdays and a few pounds to get in during the weekend, so once we get the chance to try the place for ourselves this year we will be able to confirm the pricing information.
Now, onto the most exciting part, the food vendors. Mimi’s Bakehouse will be on-site treating visitors with the best of their bakes, as well as The Jingle Bus, Edinburgh’s oldest Indian restaurant. Wing Theory is making all of your chicken wing dreams come true, while Antojitos has the Mexican street food vibes on point.
Sando has all the quirky sandwiches ready to be devoured, and Steam Bunny is delivering all the bao buns one can ever need (yes, bao buns are a need, not a want). Mac Man is here to satisfy mac and cheese lovers, and, of course, we cannot leave you without pizza in a street food market: Wanderers Kneaded are there with woodfired pizzas on the ready.
Guests can also expect an Innis & Gunn truck serving the perfect pours, and we expect there will be plenty of other spots to grab drinks from, such as coffee, rum or gin. So, we cannot wait to start the Summer off right at The Neighbourgood Market.
