If you’re one of those people who are constantly seeking out the freshest produce, the crispiest fruit and the just-butchered meats, consider doing your shopping in season and load up the wagon at the Market at Callingwood, one of Edmonton's more prominent local farmer's markets. With over one hundred vendors, the farmer’s market is a cornucopia of choices.
Keeping the Freshest Available in Season
Open from May to October, the market showcases a whole array of the latest seasonal fruits and vegetables. Alberta’s farmers bring in their crops of asparagus, beans, beets, carrots, cauliflower, lettuce, potatoes, pumpkins, tomatoes and zucchini, all fresh from the fields and ready for your table. Or, if you’re looking for lean meats with no preservatives, try free-range chicken, organic pork or Alberta bison, all ready for some barbequing.
More than Just Meats and Veggies
The market also features mouthwatering home-made baked goods for the shopper with the sweet tooth. There are items there for shoppers with dairy and wheat allergies, as well as sugar and gluten-free products. After picking up your groceries, make sure to check out the extensive crafts area that features local artisans and include everything from walking sticks to garden gnomes to handmade paper. Children’s and infant’s wear—homemade with love—are available and, if you’re in the market for some homemade furniture, look no further. The Marketplace at Collingwood has everything you could need, and a little bit more.
