As the days grow longer and the weather warms up, Edmonton has awoken from its winter slumber and the sidewalks and streets are full of activity. Among the many annual traditions in Edmonton, residents look forward to attending the numerous Farmers’ Markets throughout the city. With freshly grown produce, creative crafts, local art, and hand-made woodwork, farmers’ markets are a great opportunity to experience the creativity and flavor Edmonton has to offer. Plus, attending farmers’ markets allows you to get out and soak in the warmth of spring and summer in Edmonton as part of our great community.
To help you plan your farmers’ market attendance, we put together this handy Edmonton Outdoors Farmers’ Market Schedule for 2015, where you can find dates and times for all your favourite markets.
