EDINBURGH will soon welcome the city’s first ever contactless open-air market when it opens later this month. 

The Neighbourgood Market, located at The Grande Club in Stockbridge, will invite food operators and restaurants from the area to sell their products.

The Grange Club and the team behind The Neighbourgood Market have reached agreement on the use of the land for the new marketplace that will open on Wednesday July 15. 

It is hoped that the venture will provide an avenue for local businesses to get up and running post lockdown

Neighbourgood Market will offer a varied selection of different food and drink operators in one place and will be a 100% contactless site. 

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 market is now fully let, having 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 will 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 and Tribe Yoga
