2 June 2016
The Custom House Leith Pop Up Market was named as the best thing to do by the Skinny Magazine. Over 80 stall holders were in attendance and over 1500 people visited. 

The Cowgate pop up market had issues with licenses which meant that the event had to be called off. SHBT offered up Custom House Leith as an alternative venue and saved the day. Licenses were purchased, the building organised and checked and the market was a roaring success for all involved.
