Localmotive Market brings traders to Waverley Station



When I first heard about Localmotive Markets, back at a Scran Salon event earlier in the year, I was delighted that another market would be joining our now thriving local scene.

From Stockbridge to the Edinburgh Farmers’ Market and any number of smaller events dotted around the city, we’ve gone from dearth to abundance in a very short period.



The mastermind behind both Localmotive and the Tram Stop Markets is Vicky MacDonald, working with Tania Pramschufer on the Localmotive project. This market provides a showcase both for food and drink purveyors, but also local arts, crafts and gifts stalls.

The launch of the market took place on 6 June, with the Lord Provost presiding over the opening ceremonies. The centrepiece was a fantastic train cake made by 3D cakes. There was wonderfully refreshing hibiscus and mint tea on offer from Miss IntegriTea, to accompany it.

I was very taken with Scoff’s Cullen skink served wrapped in a potato scone. I can think of few dishes more infused with Scottishness.

There was beer from Eden, bread from Manna House, a whole range of goodies from Earthy, tasty looking burgers from Edin-Burgers, and lots more.

The market runs every Friday from 11am until 7pm. It should be added to your diary for a visit, very soon.
