“This upcoming season will mark our 28th year of operations, Calgary’s oldest, continuously running farmers’ market.”
2019 is here and this will be our fourth year in the northeast parking lot at Deerfoot City where we will continue on in the same tradition we have for the past 27 years offering Calgarians the same wonderful variety of locally grown, baked or produced goods.
Update – Exciting news, the Grassroots Market will be relocating to a new area at Deerfoot city. We will be at the very heart of the complex directly south of the 9th Street NE entrance and it will be a much more pedestrian friendly street market type of experience with benches readily available and public washrooms nearby at the Food Lodge.
The The Grassroots Deerfoot Farmers’ Market (formerly known as Grassroots Northland Farmers’ Market) was created in 1992 by three women in the community to raise money for environmental issues. They successfully ran the market each week for 15 years! Since then, the Grassroots Skaters’ Foundation took over, building on the strong base.
The market is at Deerfoot City in north Calgary and has earned valuable support from the mall and associated retailers as a “locator” and customer draw. Also we would like to ask that you peruse/visit other retailers at Deerfoot City if you are visiting our market – these retailers support our market and we would like to see them realize increased foot traffic as well. Deerfoot City has seen many exciting and great changes in the past few years and there is some incredible stuff still to come.
