Farms & Markets Food, Shopping & Relaxation

Looking for the perfect picnic lunch? Connect with Albertans who are passionate about bringing top quality food from the land to your table. Stroll through the bustling aisles of a farmers’ market and give in to the tempting aroma of artisan breads, cheeses and savoury meat pies. Add some fresh berries to your basket, Canada’s best summer dessert. Pick up one-of-a-kind gifts and souvenirs. Take a drive through the countryside on a wide open rural road and visit one of our many you-pick farms. There is something satisfying about pulling your own fresh, crisp produce directly from the earth.

Each month, an Alberta foodie will post a favourite culinary adventure or experience in Alberta. First up is Julie Van Rosendaal, sharing insights on her favourite chocolatiers in Calgary.
