Whether you’re a vegetable lover, you crave the freshest ingredients or you want to support your local hard working neighbours, the Calgary Farmers’ Market is always stocked with a variety of what’s in season every month of the year. Open Thursday through Sunday, browse 75-100 vendors for top-shelf organic foods, handmade trinkets, homemade goodies as well as fresh fruits and vegetables from farmers all across Alberta. Long acclaimed for its focus on organic farming and organic foods, the Calgary Farmers’ Market has finally been recognized citywide for their accomplishments.

Come for an hour or stay for three – here at the Calgary Farmers’ Market, you can find vendors selling artisanal items, trendy clothing, homemade baking and desserts, bath and body items, fruit and vegetables, local dairy products, coffee and tea, flowers, honey and other preservatives, nuts, spices, pet products, specialty diet foods alongside wine, beer and spirits. Ask any of the local makers to tell you about their organic processes and they’ll happily talk your ear off about how their products are sourced and made. If you haven’t heard, there are plans for a second location to open in Greenwich in 2020 so that organic goods can be enjoyed by a wider local audience.
