Farms & Markets Food, Shopping & Relaxation

Fresh Alberta carrots are as good as candy. If a modest root vegetable can be that delicious, imagine what’s possible from the rest of Alberta’s farms, orchards and ranches. • Grocery list: Local must-tries include grass-fed beef, heritage pork, sourdough bread, anything rhubarb, and even the humble beet, onion and potato. • Markets: On Saturdays, 130 vendors fill up Edmonton’s Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market. If they can make it, bake it or grow it, they sell it. • DIY: Time it right and you can pick your own Saskatoon berries straight from the farm. The small purple berries are magic in a pie or straight off the branch.

Kraay Family Farm | Government of Alberta

Leighton Art Centre is where art and nature come together in Southern Alberta’s Foothills. More than just a unique historic home once owned by a pair of renowned artists, it's a vibrant and open space for creativity, inspiring all who visit to explore, appreciate and create. In 2012, Barbara Leighton - a woman who lived and unconventional life and the Centre's founder - was posthumously honoured as one of '100 Outstanding Albertans' in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Calgary Stampede. Her legacy is a beautiful one indeed.
