Love mediterranean food and produce? I do. On a dreich Edinburgh Tuesday with 89% chance of rain I welcome anything that evokes the scent of sun-warmed sandstone, eucalyptus, lavender and a salty sea breeze. Lucky for me, a Mediterranean feast is coming to Edinburgh this year.
What and when?
Inspired by Mediterranean street festivals and markets, Kora brings together producers, musicians and caterers from around the Mediterranean Sea. This year, businesses from Greece, Spain, Italy, Syria, Gaza and the West Bank, Cyprus, Turkey, Malta, and the Lebanon bring their very best to Edinburgh. It’s an opportunity to have fun and investigate what the Mediterranean (not to forget the Mediterranean diet) has to offer in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.
Kora – the Mediterraneans Feast takes place in the Assembly Roxy on May 2-3. Tickets are £3 for a day.
What can you expect?
There will be stalls with difficult-to-source produce and wares, and yet more for food – sweet and savoury, hot and cold – and artisan coffee. As well as a fab opportunities for shopping and eating there will be live music and spaces to sit and chill. The aim is to create an authentic Mediterranean market which just happens to be indoors in Edinburgh. It’s a great chance bring the family (children under 12 go for free) or assemble a group of friends and have a good day.
