Summer Markets 2014

Saturday Markets - August 2014

This year, the managers of the original Grassmarket Original Fair are not available due to family commitments. The organisers are hoping to run the market again next year but for 2014 Greater Grassmarket BID are taking on the running of activities on the first three Saturdays of August and have appointed The French Food Company as managers.

Visit the Grassmarket Summer Fair!

The Grassmarket Summer Fair will be held on the first three Saturdays in August, attracting locals, festival goers and tourists alike.
Traditionally the summer Saturday fair focuses on antiques and bric-a-brac and takes place in the centre of the Grassmarket. We are hoping to work to continue this legacy in 2014.
