Edinburgh’s street food royalty turns out for the second pitt market
Barnacles Bones Pitt Market

The second pitt street food market took place yesterday and – obviously – WOW247 Edinburgh was there to sample as many delicious delights as possible.

It’s a hard job, but someone’s got to do it.

Bringing the usually quiet residential and industrial Pitt Street area to life, the pitt is a monthly celebration of Scottish food and drink, and the people who love what they do.

After the success of the pitt’s debut back in December, February’s market was highly anticipated and bustling soon after its 12pm kick off time.

The outdoor space – normally home to a car wash – was transformed into a Pinterest lover’s dream, with furniture made from re-purposed wooden pallets, warming fire barrels and strings of twinkling fairy lights ensuring things would stay cosy after dark.

We were happy to see market co-founder Scott Kirkham’s Rost food truck back on site again, serving up everything from pheasant burgers to haggis and sweet potato pierogis.

We also enjoyed a juicy made-to-order bacon cheeseburger cooked up by Jones & Son Bespoke BBQs and Italian-inspired beef arancini from Barnacles & Bones.

Naturally the eating couldn’t stop there with so much fantastic food on offer, so we moved on to some traditional margarita pizza from the Big Blu Pizza Van followed by a fresh lemon and ricotta filled Twelve Triangles doughnut – a local foodie’s dream.

The beer, fizz and cocktails were flowing, thanks to Summerhall-based brewer Barney’s Beer, Stockbridge wine experts Smith & Gertrude and the masterful mixologists from Solid Liquids.

All that eating and drinking was tiring work, but thankfully The Bearded Barista was on hand to perk us up with a much-welcomed caffeine fix.

Casual musical entertainment was provided by performers davebemac and Children O The Mist, adding to the fun, festival atmosphere of the market.

Since the pitt is dog friendly, there was also plenty of entertainment to be found in watching some adorable furry faces exploring and enjoying themselves.

The venue was busy long into the night, but with the fires still burning the remaining night owls were kept warm, fed and watered.
