7 Insta feeds to follow before the Edinburgh Food Festival

With stalls, talks and demos taking place over five days, there's plenty to look forward to at the Edinburgh Food Festival

The Edinburgh Food Festival rolls into town from 25–29 July, in just enough time to pack in a little bit of padding before the August madness really gets into gear. The completely free event will take over Assembly George Square Gardens once again, with a lineup of over 20 local food and drink producers set to cook up a storm for visitors of all ages. Highlights include Ting Thai Caravan's return to the Gardens after a six-year absence, demos a-plenty from the likes of Slow Food Scotland, as well as talks from industry experts like whisky consultant Blair Bowman, who'll be discussing all things gin.

All this and … prosecco pong too? Yep, organisers have announced plans to stage Edinburgh's first ever official prosecco pong contest in association with Poco Prosecco. There's no need for non-drinkers to miss out on the fun though – Beetle Juice, the VW cocktail and mocktail bar, will also be running a fruit juice pong contest with the chance to win a mocktail.

SAVE THE DATE: Pop your cork for Edinburgh’s first Prosecco Pong Contest as part of @EdFoodFest m, 25-29 July 2018, Assembly George Square Gardens 🍾🥂.

Chick + Pea

As regular visitors to Edinburgh's street food fairs, they'll be dispensing freshly made falafel on locally made flatbread from their bright blue van, but do not, on any account, miss the halloumi fries.

Dearest people of @trnsmtfest and fans of @arcticmonkeys you will find us all day in the shade of the basking sunshine next to the @kingtutsofficial stage with our fellow traders under the @platform_gla banner!
