The new open air market will open on the rooftop of Waverley in Edinburgh city centre on Wednesday 8 July.

What's on offer?

A range of street food and drink will be available to buy, giving customers the chance to support local traders.

The official line-up of local independent businesses at Neighbourhood include:

- El Cartel: Inspired Mexican street food

- Fire & Dough: Artisan wood-fired pizza

- Kebbabar: Gourmet kebabs

- Linton & Co: Specialty coffee and brownies

- Herringbone in collaboration with Innis & Gunn: cocktails, mocktails, beer & wine

More names will be announced as the market grows.

Speaking ahead of the opening, Jenny Maniam, co-director of Neighbourhood said: “We wanted to do something that provided an opportunity for some of our colleagues in the hospitality industries who have been hit hard as well as tapping into the incredible public consciousness that has seen a real swing towards supporting local businesses.

"We want to look forward, not back, and celebrate the diverse independent food businesses that help define our city in a safe environment. Edinburgh is going to feel very different this summer and we hope to create something locals can truly enjoy in a way they probably won't ever again.”

Daryll Bunce, director of innovation at Moorgarth, who run Waverley Mall, said: “We are delighted to welcome Neighbourhood to our excellent rooftop area at Waverley to enjoy some of the best quality street food and drink that our city has to offer.

"We are extremely pleased to work together on this new and exciting collaboration to launch Neighbourhood’s summer rooftop market and explore further future collaborations.

"We feel very strongly about supporting local independent businesses and retailers especially during these times.

"We want to work together to give them an opportunity to shine as they make a comeback and provide a very current and relevant offering to our customers as we welcome them back to the city centre.”
