It’s market day in Edinburgh and the shoppers are out and about in the cold autumn weather.
It’s a farmer’s market type thing, which seem to be really popular these days. I heartily approve, sure beats getting questionable produce vacuum-packed from a supermarket.
Looks like there’s a lot of home-made craft products too, stuff like beer and jam. Food and drink with real flavour for a change.
And a puppy, aww! Looks a bit grumpy though.
I’ve seen these markets in a few towns around the country now. Must be a great opportunity for these folk to make a few extra quid without getting ripped off by the big supermarkets.
This market has the skyline of Edinburgh as a lovely backdrop. Unfortunately my lens wasn’t quite wide enough to get the castle in shot, it was a little too close by.
The market was busy too. There was even quite a few tourists having a nose about, here’s hoping they enjoyed the local Scottish produce.
I managed to avoid buying anything today and just stuck to the photography. I did get quite hungry though.
To finish, who wouldn’t be over the moon for a creme brulee from a camper van?!? OK, maybe not some people…
