Henderson's 50/50 Food Festival

A 50 Day Celebration of 50 Years in Edinburgh

When she first threw open the door to Henderson's Salad Table in Spring 1963, our mother Janet could hardly have dreamed that millions of people would walk through it over the next five decades. Back then, Henderson's were pioneers in championing healthy, local, seasonal food and in that respect we haven't changed at all.

This year also marks the centenary of Janet's birth so we've plenty to celebrate. Our motto 'Eat Better Live Better' is all about good food, spending time with the family and having fun so we're proud to mark our half century with a 50-day festival that has something delicious and enjoyable for everyone.

The Henderson's family are looking forward to welcoming customers old and new to help us celebrate Janet's amazing legacy.
