Food and drink producers, street food vendors and culinary creatives from across Scotland have just until the 3rd of June to apply for a space at this year’s Edinburgh Food Festival.

Taking place in Assembly George Square Gardens from 19-28 July 2019, the annual foodie event welcomed over 25,000 visitors in 2018 and is now expected to be bigger and better than ever in 2019.

Returning exhibitors already include award-winning Berwickshire pie makers, Jarvis Pickle, who will be offering a taste of the Scottish Borders throughout the 10-day event with their tasty selection of traditional meat, fish and vegetarian filled pastry pockets.

The Festival line-up will also feature Mexican and Caribbean-inspired street food from Umami Spice; Mediterranean and Middle East falafel, tagines and hummus from Chick & Pea; gourmet Kebabs from Kebabbar and East Lothian’s Alandas Scottish Seafood.

Based in Prestonpans, Alandas offers a fish and chip experience; where fresh prawns, beautifully cooked salmon and mouthwatering fresh oysters are served everyday. All of the seafood used by Alandas is caught daily in local Scottish waters, including their freshly caught lobsters. Not only that, but Alandas tasty chips are made from locally-sourced potatoes, ensuring the flavour is perfect time and time again.

Edinburgh Food Festival Producer, Alex Fitzhowle, said: “To mark the fifth anniversary of Edinburgh’s only city centre food festival, we’re now finalising our plans for a new bumper line-up, including a series of meet the local producer events and chef demonstrations, as well as over 20 local producers and street food stallholders serving up some of Scotland’s best contemporary food and drink.”

“Exhibitors have just a few days left to make their applications and be in with a chance to showcase their tasty produce and culinary skills amongst some of the best in Scotland. Festivalgoers can find out more about this year’s line-up at www.edfoodfest.com and by following us on social media using hashtag #EdFoodFest2019.”

Alanda Black, owner of Alandas Scottish Seafood, Alandas Fish & Chips and Alandas Gelato, added: “Edinburgh Food Festival is a brilliant showcase of food and drink producers across Scotland. Each year it’s great to see new food trends showcased and the large variety on offer. The quality of food is fantastic and there is something for everyone. It’s also the perfect family friendly event in a handy city centre location.

“We can’t wait to take part again this year with our selection of freshly caught Scottish seafood, old school fresh fish and chips and multi award-winning gelato. We look forward to welcoming more visitors than ever in 2019.”


With quality Scottish food at the heart of it, Assembly Edinburgh Food Festival is a fantastic introduction for residents in the Lothians and visitors alike to get a flavour for what Scotland’s larder has to offer.

The free festival welcomes visitors of all ages to Edinburgh’s Assembly George Square Gardens. Entry to the festival and the talks is free and non-ticketed.

Food and drink producers, street food vendors, chefs and other culinary creatives should submit a written application to Edinburgh Food Festival Producer, Alex Fitzhowle, by 3rd of June, E: edfoodfest@assemblyfestival.com
