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?

  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,
