Food has been hitting the headlines recently for all the wrong reasons, so thank goodness for passionate ‘foodies’ like Beth Berry. Scotland is teeming with diverse and fresh produce from venison to salmon; not to mention an array of mouth-watering fruit and vegetables.
Beth helped to dispel the myth that Scotland’s culinary offering is all ‘stewed tea and shortbread’ by launching the Stockbridge Market in Edinburgh in September 2011. However, the market is very much more than just a food market, it seamlessly blends the best of local produce with some imported delicacies and also Scottish based artisans. Stall holders and producers include soap, skincare, tea, beer, wine, cheese, home-bakes, bread and even gourmet dog treats…..and so much more.
Nestled in bustling Stockbridge, a quirky area of Edinburgh which used to be an outlying village of the city; the market is open each Sunday. I applaud Beth as it’s a brilliant place to take our smaller incentive groups to; it’s an authentic market to whet their appetites with a distinct taste of Scotland.
