  • My trip to the farmer's market

    Today was the opening of the downtown farmer's market here in Edmonton. It is smack dab in the middle of the downtown along the best street in the core IMO. It has grown exponentially over the years with around 120 booths ranging from free range meats, seafood, flowers, dog treat, and everything else you can imagine. Enjoy.

    Behind my condo walking to the core.

    I love the old church against the newer red tower

        It's great to see such a large crowd at the downtown market.

          It looks like the market is getting better every year.
          Edmonton first, everything else second.

            there were more people there than i can recall at any other was amazing. I heard this comment more than once:

            "feels like places in europe where everyone comes out weekend mornings to get their thigns"

            LOVE IT

              I agree. Hopefully we see a growing mix of vendors in the market. One of the things I love about European markets is that you can find all kinds of stuff - from olives to gypsy-made pillows to feta.
