The team behind a popular Edinburgh summer food and drink market have announced a new beachside venue.

Neighbourgood, the team behind Stockbridge's Neighbourgood Market, have taken to Instagram to tease a new event at one of the city's busiest summer spots - Portobello Beach.

With the Stockbridge market attracting tens of thousands of visitors each year with food and drink vendors as well as live entertainment and sport, the team have set the sights on a exciting new project.
