Seasons Greetings!

It’s nearly Christmas, and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all you’ve done to keep our community owned shop open and vibrant throughout the year.

As the holiday approaches, here are a few ways you can continue to support Dig In this Christmas:

  • Give a gift card – we offer gift cards for any value over £5, and this is a great way to keep your Christmas spending in the community. Dig In gift cards make great gifts for any regular customer, but more importantly, they are a wonderful way to encourage someone new to come in to see what we have to offer.
  • Sign up for a Veg Bag – you choose the size (single, two person or family) and how often you’d like to collect your bag (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly), and our volunteers will gather some staples alongside a rotation of fruit and vegetables that look great that day. All you need to do is pop by to pick it up on a day that suits.
  • Sign up for a Supporters Card – we’re here to help you with your New Year’s resolution to eat more fresh fruit and veg and support your local community in the process. Ask us about making a monthly commitment to shopping with us.
  • Share Dig In with a friend – we’ve got 10% off for all new customers between now and the 21st December. Please download and share the discount flyer with ALL your friends and coworkers who may enjoy supporting our community owned greengrocer.

Finally, here is a note of our opening hours over the holiday period:

Saturday 24th – open 9.30-4pm
Sunday 25th-Tuesday 27th – closed for Christmas
Wednesday 28th-Friday 30th – OPEN as usual, 10am-7pm

Saturday 31st – 9.30-2pm
Sunday 1st-Tuesday 3rd – closed for Hogmanay
Wednesday 4th – OPEN as usual, 10am-7pm

Come see us to stock up for Christmas, and pop back in to refresh your cupboards for Hogmanay. If you’re a volunteer who is staying in Edinburgh over the holidays, we’d love some additional support to keep the shop open. Please email us at if you’re willing to help out for a few extra hours.
