Edinburghâ€™s second Green Fair takes place in Tollcross this Saturday (27 February) with the organizers hoping for a repeat of last yearâ€™s success.
In February 2009 600 people attended the event, bringing much needed trade to local and fair-trade businesses at a time of economic gloom.ã€€ This year the fair has expanded with a greater range of stalls, from producers of goods and services through to campaign organizations and advice stalls. ã€€
Local Green councillor, Alison Johnstone said:
“I am delighted that the Green Fair is returning having had such huge support from the public last year.ã€€ I firmly believe that our economic future lies in promoting thriving small and local businesses so this kind of event is exactly the right kind for now and years to come.” ã€€ã€€
The Green Fair takes place on Saturday 27 April from 10.30am to 3.00pm at the Barclay Church Hall, at the bottom of Bruntsfield Place.ã€€ Entry is free.
