Edmontonian moving to Calgary; looking for FM

asiandelight | May 31, 2008 11:17 PM

I am an Edmontonian about to move to Calgary and I am sad, sad, sad that I will be giving up my Saturday morning jaunts to the Strathcona Farmer's Market. I have only been to the Currie Barracks market in Calgary and I think any ex-Edmontonian Calgarian will agree with me that the Strathcona FM is far superior. I mean the CB FM sells fruit and veggies from the US and Mexico! I think Edmonton and area has a far greater number of farms? I will dearly miss Peas on Earth, August Organics, Four Whistle Farms, Sunworks (I know they're at CB but it's just not the same - and more expensive!).

The CB market is far too trendy (more so that Strathcona) and "commercial" and doesn't offer the same local, quality, organic produce that I am used to. Can anyone suggest a better farmer's market in Calgary to go to?
