Edinburgh’s first contactless open-air market, The Neighbourgood Market, located in the grounds of The Grande Club, opens today (15 July) in Stockbridge. It offers customers a new street food and restaurant offering and provides a ‘safe and dynamic platform’ for local businesses and traders to sell products. One-way demarcated walkways and designated circular seating zones for small groups of up to 5 people to gather and socialise are in place.
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 has attracted some Edinburgh based brands, including Bross Bagels, Mana Poke Bowls, Mimis Bakery, Brew Lab, Innis and Gunn and Edinburgh Gin.
It will run weekly until the end of August, Wednesday to Sunday and starts today, Wednesday 15th of July. The trading hours will be 12:00pm until 19:00pm.
