Up and running!

It’s been a cold, wet summer in and around Edinburgh this year, but it certainly hasn’t been dull here at Flat Out!

The markets in Morningside and Penicuik operate at a slower pace and we love the chance to spend a bit more time with customers – Belle catches the eye, and Bob swoops in with the chat!

More soon!
