Over 130 of the finest food producers, artisans and growers bring a slice of rural life to the city at one of Edmonton's only year round, indoor farmers' markets.
Every Saturday a bustling crowd in the heart of Edmonton's historic Strathcona district unites in an atmosphere of festivity and community. Join other families, friends, foodies, shoppers, and adventure seekers who converge in a historic building to shop for unique hand-made products, enjoy food at the height of its natural harvest time, and connect directly with local farmers who personally transport their goods to your plate.
The market began in 1983 in the parking lot on the corner of 83rd Ave and 103rd Street (now the location of our free customer parking), outdoors with only 10-15 farmers, bakers and artisans selling a small variety of plants, vegetables, baking and crafts. In 1986 we moved inside to the "Old Bus Barns" on Saturdays. The underlying philosophy of the market which we still use today was introduced, "We Make it! We Bake it! We Grow it! We Sell it!" Now after 30 years, we rotate through a roster of nearly 300 vendors who carry a wide variety of handmade, homegrown products including local farmer's products fresh from the farm, organic, specialty and ethnic foods as well as a large selection of unique arts, crafts and jewellery. We're open every Saturday 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Old Strathcona Farmers' Market is proud to be a part of the vitality of local farms and small businesses and a contributor to an economically and socially diverse city-centered community in the midst of Edmonton's most unique theatre and shopping district.
We make it, we bake it, we grow it, and we sell it.
