You know those weekends when you wake up early, get up quickly and go out? Yesterday it’s exactly what I did. Checking that it was only 10 when I woke up, I realised that it would be the perfect time for me to finally check out the Castle Terrace Farmers’ Market. I’ve been wanting to get there so many times, but it closing at 1pm has always been an inconvenience and time was never on my side.
Edinburgh Farmers’ Market
The premature nostalgia I’ve been experiencing lately (I’ve only got two weeks left in Edinburgh) made me jump out of bed quickly, tell my slight hangover to go away, put some clothes on and go. I didn’t quite know at that point that the supposedly short visit would turn into a full day of food related adventures. After a burger for a breakfast of sorts, some boudin noir and an aged venison stick sausage from Hammond Charcuterie (about which I will write a full article once I will have had the boudin noir), I decided to take my cravings further.
For about a year now, my boyfriend and I have been on the lookout for buffalo meat. We precisely wanted Puddledub Buffalo, and not only thanks to its cute and funny name, but because they’ve got really good products! What better time to do that when you’ve already got the foodie mindset and are already out of the house? We jumped on a bus and headed towards Craigie’s Farm, one of the few distributors of Puddledub Buffalo around Edinburgh.
The trip, that I had imagined to be a long journey with a quick stop in the farm’s deli, turned into an exciting day trip where not only did we find Puddledub Buffalo meat, but also met a bunch of farm animals: some sleepy pigs, some baby goats, some Shetland ponies and a handful of sheep. Anyway. I should probably stop boring you with words. Now I’ll let the photos tell the whole story!
Until next time,
Love, happyholism and nom-nom,
