The industrial site of Pitt Street hosts a number of events, with the Pitt Street Food Market being one of the highlights. When visiting Edinburgh, be sure to drop in and sample some of the best street food Scotland has to offer. The variety available ranges from unusual delights such as Kentucky Fried Rabbit, or there’s locally sourced fresh fish. Once you’ve chosen your main course try dessert from the award-winning Crema Caravan, specialising in Crème Brulee. With local brewery’s supplying the bar, Pitt Street Food Market is a great place to eat out for lunch or dinner.
Pitt Street is situated just outside Edinburgh in Leith, which is less than 15 minutes away. If you are driving parking spaces are limited, but you can easily catch the bus. Arriving by train head to Haymarket, which is only a quick change from Edinburgh. Coming from further afield, Edinburgh International Airport is 8 miles from the city centre. It only costs £1 to enter into Pitt Street Food Market, opening times are 12pm to 10pm and children are welcome up until 8pm.
The Pitt Street Food Market promotes local businesses, so show your support and eat at the venue. Try something more traditionally associated with Scotland such as haggis, neaps and tatties. In the build-up to Christmas you may find an alternative take on the turkey roast dinner. Sample beers from the local brewery, or keep an eye out for locally sourced wines and spirits. Children are allowed on site until 8pm, so if you’re with the family you can still enjoy a meal together. Remember that Pitt Street is partly out in the open, so dress appropriately for the winter months.
