Southwest Edmonton Farmers' Market

Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on our big news this week. You guys are the best :) So, now that I'm busy making a human, I am doing my best to eat healthy which is why I am thrilled a new farmers' market opened up right in my neighbourhood!

The Southwest Edmonton Farmers' Market made its big debut (red ribbon and all) last night in the Lillian Osborne High School parking lot. After battling some cuckoo traffic, I was lured in by the mouth watering smell of kettle corn and Fat Franks hot dogs. Mmmm, totally falls into the healthy category, right? It was a great turnout and had a good variety of local farmers, bakeries, artists and businesses.

You could tell everyone was equally excited as I am about more local options in the community. Not living in the "core" of the city it's is a major luxury having something like this right down the street! The market will run Wednesday evenings from 5:30 - 8:00pm and I am looking forward to many an evening stopping by on my way home from work! Even if it's just for kettle corn ; )

  13. I adore going to farmer's markets. I can't resist even if I'm just on holiday somewhere and can't buy anything. So "back to basics" I guess. Enjoy the long weekend!

  15. Nothing beats a good farmer's market~ and ya, unfortunately I always go for the artisan cheesy breads and baked goods rather than the veggies;) What's a girl to do?

  19. My husband and I absolutely love spending weekends at local farmer's markets in Seattle. We are so lucky to have a handful of neighborhoods surrounding us, each with their own flavor of market. Last weekend we spent time at the biggest market of them all in Seattle, Pike Place Market. Fresh asparagus and hand crafted cheese? Yes, please! ...www.makehappyblog.com
