Community stalls open from 11am in Potterrow, with a free lunch being served outside in Bristo Square from 12pm until 5,000 portions run out or we close at 4pm!

The purpose of this event is to: 

  1. Inspire awareness about local food production, food waste and social responsibility.
  2. Engage Edinburgh residents about the proposed strategy to develop Edinburgh as a Sustainable Food City and launch "Edible Edinburgh" - an action group of the re-established Edinburgh Sustainable Development Partnership.
