Edmonton AB Farmers Markets
A great way to kick off summer is by going to local farmers markets. The markets are a wonderful place to purchase locally grown produce, handmade goods and interact with community members of all ages and demographics.
Not only are farmers markets very popular in Edmonton, but they’re a popular event throughout the world.
While some countries have daily markets as their primary source of shopping for goods such as groceries and trinkets, there are a few Edmonton AB farmers markets that we love and think you’ll love too.
