I’ve been fairly poor in my attendance at the Edinburgh Farmers Market on Castle Terrace, recently, but I managed to drag myself along on a grey Saturday, to see what was what.
After a spin around the stalls, including a chat with Rachel from Hammond Charcuterie, I decided that coffee was all that was required on this visit, so I headed to Northern Edge, a stalwart stall that has been trading at the market for a good while.
I’d visited a few times before and found it slightly hit and miss, which is sometimes the way with coffee on market stalls.
They’ve expanded their stall to now include two machines, which today showcased their Jimmy Strength and Three Bridges roasts. I opted for the latter served as my usual espresso (£1.80).
It proved to be very good with a pleasing brightness. It hit the spot really well.
So overall, it was good to find Northern Edge in such fine fettle. Their coffee is available in retail bags from the market stall, as well as in hot form, and you can also sample it at the Royal Exchange Cafe. Give it a go next time you get the chance.
