We are delighted to announce the launch of a new food market in Potterrow Dome, in partnership with Edinburgh University Students’ Association and At The Market Ltd.

Potterrow Market will run on select Wednesdays throughout the year. Staff, students and the public are welcome to attend. There is no need to register in advance; simply turn up and browse!

Staff and students with a valid University card will receive a 10% discount from participating stalls.

More information

  • At the market you’ll find ready-to-eat foods as well as ingredients for cooking, with an emphasis on fresh and healthy fare.
  • The majority of products will have been grown, raised or prepared in Scotland. A producer or someone involved in production will always be present and happy to answer any questions. Exceptions are made for products that cannot be sourced from Scotland. Where products cannot be grown locally they are sourced directly from the producer who receives a fair price. Feel free to contact us for more information.
  • A variety of vegetarian and vegan options will be available.
  • Fresh meat, fruit and vegetables are organic.
  • Traders have Product and Public Liability Insurance and meet the required health and hygiene standards.
