Oh go on then
A friend of mine has moved to Glasgow to complete the PGCE part of her teaching qualification. My friends and I decided to surprise the fourth musketeer with a visit, and we spent the whole weekend eating. I don't know anything about the food scene in Glasgow, but my friend has quickly sought out some of the cool places to chow down. Thus, our weekend was one of laughter, scones, fresh bread, and chatting with the locals. What stuck out most, for me, was the Why Not? Market in North Berwick, where we truly got our fill of yummy, Glaswegian eats.

To begin with we found a perfect spot to park in the seaside town of North Berwick and lazily made our way down to what looked like a café, a food market and a craft fair. We were slightly bemused, but our friend assured us, 'this' is what is 'always looks like'.

Why Not? is the perfect place for a lazy Saturday wander. The stalls vary daily and include produce from Knowes Farm (operated on an honesty box system), artisan breads and cheeses, and one-off pieces by local artists and makers.

I wasn't too interested in the arts and craft part of the market-cum-cafe, however it was the bread that stuck out like marbles. They smelled incredible, and the one I chose was still warm when the stall holder had wrapped it in a brown bag.

As we meandered through the market we decided to check out the cafe, which is dominated by an entire tree and serves up great coffee and freshly baked cakes. Why not, indeed.
