Services at The Mart Farm Shop

In the old days, each village had a local hub where you could get everything you needed. Today in East Linton, that hub is The Mart Farm Shop, which includes a grocery store, a café, a traditional farmers’ market, and a gift shop. We also offer the following services: dry cleaning, a post office, event catering, and special festive ordering. 

In everything we do, we aim to serve our community as best we can. This starts with our gourmet grocery store, which boasts the best local produce and carefully-selected products from farther afield. At the café, you can pop in to taste our hard-to-resist selection of sweet treats or sit down for a scrumptious meal. Our love of food doesn’t stop there. We also offer a bespoke catering service for events large and small. On top of that, every Sunday you can find local growers and makers at the East Linton Farmers’ Market, from 09.30-14.30. Finally, during our busy Christmastime and other festive periods, we offer a special selection of artisan food products and decorations. We’ll make sure you and your loved ones can celebrate in style. 

On the practical side of things, we won’t leave you stuck without a present for a special someone’s birthday. We have a thriving gift shop with something for everyone to treasure. Here you can find artisan soaps, knitwear, handbags, homeware and more. Our professional dry cleaners can help you take care of wedding dresses, highland wear and other sensitive items. Leave your wool coat here – we’ll return it as good as new. Finally, our busy post office is open seven days a week. It offers a full range of services, including a postal outreach service to neighbouring villages. 

Catering 

At The Mart Farm Shop, we’re passionate about food. We have years of experience delivering sensational catering at bespoke events in East Lothian. We’ve done everything from weddings to pop-ups and product launches. Whatever you’re planning, we will collaborate with you from step one to make sure that you and your guests have a wonderful experience. Whether you want to impress at a business lunch with our office catering service, host a dinner party, or surprise someone with a romantic picnic, no event is too big or too small. 

By far our favourite events are weddings. If you’ve already got too much on your plate with wedding planning, you can count on our experienced team to ease your stress. From main courses to cocktails and canapés, we don’t miss a beat. We also love working with couples who want to bring a personal touch to their menu. No matter what your style is – young and playful, relaxed and trendy, or elegant and traditional – our innovative catering will reflect it. The meal will be so delicious, no one will look twice at the flowers and our midnight snacks will keep your guests dancing ‘til dawn. 

We’re at home serving a vast range of cuisines, from Lebanese through to Mexican – and of course, there’s nothing like homegrown Scottish fare. No matter what style we’re cooking, all our ingredients are fresh, local, sustainable, and organic where possible.

One of the joys of catering is seeing the final event come together in a unique space. Our team has worked in poly-tunnels, food trucks, private homes and wedding halls and we can’t wait to see where we’ll serve you next. If you’re stuck for ideas, take advantage of our local knowledge: let us help you find just the right spot in East Lothian for your event. 

At The Mart Farm Shop, we strive to be as accessible to our local community as possible. That’s why we have a range of options when it comes to catering. You can collect directly from our site, we can deliver to you, or we can cater and staff your event from start to finish. If there’s another option you’d like to explore, or if you fancy a chat about your catering vision, give us a ring. We can also provide you with an example menu.
