Social Enterprise

The team behind Edinburgh Larder have set up a social enterprise which aims to make local food more accessible by working with schools and communities to develop cooking skills. Thanks so much to everyone who helped us reach our £10k target on Kickstarter to buy a food truck – watch this space for more information on our plans and please request to join our Facebook page!

Edinburgh Food Social have teamed up with the Biscuit Factory to offer an affordable monthly food & craft market. The first took place in November 2016 and was an unmitigated success! You can register interest for such events in future via the Facebook group below.

If you’re a producer or food vendor then please complete the application form below. We’d like to offer places to as many vendors as possible, so please allow time for applications to be reviewed due to the high volume. For any and all enquiries, email us via and you’ll hear from us soon.

We’ll operate the markets on a first come first served basis and we want to have a good variety of vendors. We may not be able to give a stall to everyone but our markets operate monthly with the next happening over the weekend of 25th and 26th March with another planned for the last weekend of April. Please let us know if you’re interested in one of these dates and we’ll aim to fit you into at least one market.

Our Aim

The team behind the Edinburgh Food Social want to bring the benefits of using local food into schools and communities across Edinburgh by taking a food truck around the city and beyond to showcase what can be done with local food, all year round. They believe that everyone in Scotland deserves to have access to the great produce we have on our doorstep and the means to cook with it if they want to.

They hope to inspire children to cook with local produce and become involved in planning the menus in their schools. The team hope to help people of all ages and backgrounds develop their cooking skills and create nutritionally balanced meals using local, seasonal food.

Eleanor Cunningham, owner of the Larder and founder of Edinburgh Food Social says using local produce “means there’s a real connection between the supplier and the food we serve. The producers in Scotland work incredibly hard to develop really fantastic ingredients which are at the core of everything we cook – we’d like more people to have the opportunity to use these ingredients.”
