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.

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.

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:


This bustling year-round market offers an impressive array of local fresh produce, bakery 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.
