Attracting huge numbers of tourists, performers and promoters from all over the world, the centre of the festival makes an excellent trading location.

The markets are an integral part of the Fringe street events and run on the High Street and the Mound Precinct throughout the Fringe. Each year we look for stallholders who will fit with the nature of the event. The aim is to put together a market selling a diverse range of original, handmade, high-quality goods, designed and made by the traders themselves.

If you wish to trade on the streets of Edinburgh, outside the areas that the Fringe Society manages, you will need to make the necessary arrangements to do so yourself. Visit City of Edinburgh Council website for more information

The 2020 Fringe will not go ahead as planned.
As a charitable organisation, we are working hard to mitigate the impact of this on Fringe artists and audience members.
