The market is located below the Edinburgh Castle, and there are a lot of vendors selling various items from fresh produce to soaps. I got to sample fresh dips, cheese, jams, and jellies as I made my way through the market. There was even a meat vendor selling buffalo and ostrich burgers!
I was so excited when I came across an organic mozzarella cheese vendor, and had to splurge to get some fresh cheese. A ball was only around $1.50! The sample I had was so delish and I couldn't wait to get home and make a mozzarella, tomato, and basil sandwich.
After strolling through the market, I realized I was at an entrance of a very old graveyard which bordered one of the large parks in the city. Since it's only a week away from Halloween I felt it was appropriate to meander through the site to check out some of the graves. This yard was unlike any I had seen in the past, and was really welcoming to visitors. The trees had really nice fall color and I was able to get some great shots with my camera.
On the other side of the yard was a kids park! The architect must have been a kid at heart because the design was very interactive for parents and their kids. I really wanted to try the rope wheel in the picture below.
Strolling along I couldn't believe it when I saw social activism at it's finest. There was protest march on Princess Street regarding high taxes, guess they have the same problems here as in the US...
I love strolling through this city because I every time I head out on a different path I get to experience so many things, whether it's a local farmers market, old graveyard, or protest. I guess this is why people love living in the heart of a city. Overall, great morning wandering around the city! Until next time I'll see you on the internet.
