I am thrilled that we have at least 2 Farmers Markets open during our winter here in Edmonton, Ab! It is so warming, no pun intended, to gather and shop for hand made, local grown/raised products.
My daughter and I went to the Strathcona Farmers Market this past Saturday to find a flurry 🙂 of activity at the market! The warmth of vendors’ smiles, the scents of fresh bread and the sight of a few flowers made my heart happy!
Local musicians play at the market as well and the talent is fantastic.
I did buy a new flavour of hummus this trip along with lovely hand made pitas. I picked up Sunday night dessert which was chocolate zuchinni cake made by a lovely elderly couple! On the more healthy side, I did pick up apples from The Okanagan in B.C. and a bunch of carrots!
Next trip we will be looking for the Vegan Cupcakes and the delicious Falafels!
I leave you with a picture of our snowy, frosty Saturday in Edmonton!
I trust I have put the Farmers Market bug in your mind! It is so important to support local whenever we can. You may be surprised who you see there, not only as a customer, but as a vendor as well!! Who knew!
Until we meet again,
