Festival Complete!

george streetFreshRev’s first Edinburgh Fringe Festival was fun, full-on and successful. We met lots of nice and friendly people, both tourists and locals alike, who passed by our pitch on George Street.  Behind the scenes, we were worked off our feet: there were visits to Craigies Farm for fresh produce multiple times a week; hurried run-throughs at the Castle Terrace and Stockbridge Farmers Markets to procure berries and veggies from East Coast Organics, Phantassie Farm, Oxenfoord Organics, Tay Valley Fruits, and Ridley’s Fish and Game; mid-day deliveries from The Buffalo Farm, Mr. Eion’s Coffee Roaster, Smashin’ Eggs, Tasty Buns Bakery and Peelham Farm; and emergency stops to George Bowers Butcher, Crombies Butcher, and Real Foods.  Here is one example of the resulting menu:
