  • The Omni one is really good. It's just up from the roundabout near the top of leith Walk, opposite the back entrance to John Lewis - down on the 4th floor underground, so enter on same side of the road as the Omni centre. If selling, you enter from the back of the centre, and need to get there before 7am to guarantee a spot. Not able to open though until 8.30 when the horn goes. And can't leave until 1pm. £15 for a pitch. Packed in, but plenty of shoppers.
  • Omni Centre is one I used, but have stopeed due to greed and theft. They want everything for nothing and if you turn your back for a second, they steal anything they can get their hands on. I have heard of purses, clothes, jewellery etc going missing alot. It is definately busy, but please go with someone so there are 2 pairs of eyes.

  • Does anyone know if you can you find a spot without hiring a table and foregoing the £15 charge? I was also considering promoting my website and having a free prize draw to help build my newsletter list but I'm not sure if that's something that would be permitted?

    There are people who dont take cars and just hire a spot but you still need to pay if you mean in the omni. HTH

  • Has anyone been to the one at the Corn Exchange. I was thinking about going there but would like some feedback on whether it was worthwhile or not?
