We are delighted to share the news that the University of Edinburgh’s first Farmers’ Market is being piloted in mid-February. Drop by Potterrow on Thursday the 16th of February to grab some quality groceries and show your support for fresh, seasonal, home grown produce.

The Farmers’ Market is a joint initiative between the Students’ Association and the Department for Social Responsibility & Sustainability. The pilot is part of the Sustain.ED events programme (Edinburgh’s first citywide green festival brought to you by the Students’ Association Sabbatical Officer team, in partnership with the University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh City Council). If successful, we are planning for the Farmers’ Market to become a regular feature on campus, so please come along to show your support!
