EDINBURGH Food Festival has called upon food and drink producers, street food vendors and culinary creatives to apply for a space at this year’s festival.

The annual foodie event takes place between 19th and 28th July and last year welcomed over 25,000 visitors.

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 3 weeks 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.

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.

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.”
