Portobello Market

Portobello Market com­pli­ments Portobello’s already vibrant and thriv­ing High Street, selling loc­al and organ­ic fruit, veg, meat, fish, bak­ing, and more.  Although food is the core of the mar­ket, we also include a selec­tion of loc­al crafts and oth­er organ­ic products.

Handful of leeksThe mar­ket is held in Brighton Park, just 5 minutes walk from Portobello High Street and all the fant­ast­ic shops and amen­it­ies there.  You can find your way to the mar­ket with this MAP.

Markets are held on the first Saturday of every month, start­ing at 9.30am and clos­ing at 1.30pm. Dates are giv­en below. Click on those with links to view details of stall­hold­ers and pro­duce avail­able.

Please con­tact us if there is some­thing spe­cific that you would like to see at the mar­ket.

If you are inter­ested in hav­ing a stall, please vis­it our stall­hold­ers page for more inform­a­tion and con­tact details.

Following a couple of enquir­ies we have tried to answer the ques­tion Does organ­ic food costs me more?

PEDAL began Portobello Market with fund­ing to run tri­al mar­kets over five months from September 2010. These proved to be a huge suc­cess. The mar­ket is now run by a pro­fes­sion­al mar­ket oper­at­or — Market Craft — who  provide stalls, organ­ise stall book­ings, and ensure the mar­ket com­plies with all rel­ev­ant legis­la­tion. PEDAL remains the licenses hold­er and over­sees the smooth oper­a­tion and ongo­ing devel­op­ment of the mar­ket through a volun­teer Market Group.

    I am inter­ested in a stall for March. How would I go about book­ing this? Can you send me fur­ther inform­a­tion regard­ing this please?

    Thank you!

  14. Hi,

    I’m inter­ested in hav­ing a stall at the mar­ket on Sat (2nd Feb). Can you please provide me with details on who to con­tact etc?


  15. I am con­tact­ing you on behalf of the Young Enterprise Committee in St. Margaret’s Academy in Livingston. We noticed that the mar­ket also con­tains craft stalls and so we are inter­ested in hav­ing a stall, for one Saturday to begin with, in order to show­case and sell our products. Our com­pany, “I Iove…”, focuses on per­son­al­isa­tion with products such as can­vas bags, per­son­al­ised pho­to­graphs, S6 leav­ers items as well as sea­son­al products. We also offer set designs, all cre­ated by mem­bers of our team.Young Enterprise is a nation­al com­pet­i­tion where groups of young people cre­ate and man­age a prof­it­able busi­ness.

    We would be delighted if you would con­sider offer­ing us a dis­count on the cost of a
    stall in order to sup­port our Young Enterprise Project. We cer­tainly would be able to pro­mote the mar­ket, includ­ing men­tion­ing it in any press/promotional mater­i­als.

    Where can I buy Portobello Honey?

    • Hi Irene and Jackie

      Sadly there is no Portobello honey on sale this year as the bees did not pro­duce much because of the poor sum­mer. Fingers crossed for a good sum­mer next year!

    I am inter­ested in find­ing out about grow­ing pro­duce loc­ally on dis­used land. I have tried email­ing the grow­ing link but it appears not to be work­ing. Can you tell me where I can find out more inform­a­tion and how I can make my interest known to the group?

    • Hi there Sarah,

      Your query should have come through to me — we’ll need to look and see if the link is broken. I also get the info@pedal-porty.org.uk emails. Could you email me through that so I’ve got your con­tact details and I’ll do my best to help.

      Cheers, Eva

  28. Has the mar­ket fin­ished? Why no dates after 5th Feb?

    • Hi Stuart,

      Am happy to say the mar­ket will be con­tinu­ing on the first Saturday of every month form here on. The first five mar­kets — September to February — were pilots to see if the thing would work. And it has. So we have now con­trac­ted a pro­fes­sion­al mar­ket organ­iser — Market Craft — to run things on the day. PEDAL will remain the license hold­er and will there­fore have final say on the type/range of pro­duce on sale.

      The next mar­ket will be on Saturday 5th March.

      Thanks for your interest,
