Old Strathcona Farmer's Market

Edmonton, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:


This bustling year-round market offers an impressive array of local fresh produce, baked goods, crafts and more. The underlying philosophy of the market, which is still in use today, is, “We Make it! We Bake it! We Grow it! We Sell it!” Now in its 30th year of operation, the market rotates a roster of nearly 300 vendors through 185 stalls. On any given Saturday there are over 130 vendors selling only locally produced and handmade products.
