Edinburgh recs -- food and wine stores

Hi everyone!
Am heading to Edinburgh for 10 days over Christmast to visit my husband's family. Would like to avoid the usual exercise of buying all food items from Tesco! Am looking for recommendations for:
- good wine store (good, diverse selection of wine, port, etc - am also interested in interesting shop for different "microbrew" type beers)
- a good place to buy produce (I have heard that there is a Saturday market, what will the selection be like this time of year?)
- good place to buy desserts

Thanks in advance!
