So many changes and so much news to tell. First, we are starting our 25th year of continuous operations and are Calgary’s oldest and largest outdoor seasonal farmers’ market – in fact, we are Calgary’s oldest approved farmers’ market.
Even bigger news, we are starting are 25th year at a great new location – in the NE parking lot of Deerfoot City. Parking won’t be an issue and access to our market is now better than ever before. Followinf us to our new location are a good number of our existing vendors, some of whom have been with us since we started 25 years ago as well as we will also be welcoming a number of new vendors.
As Deerfoot City is being developed, there are as a result numerous new and exciting shops and restaurants in the area to explore as well – Original Joes, Tim Hortons, Cabelas, soon to be Canadian Tire, Quiznos, Booster Juice, Smashburger and many others as well. Existing shops and restaurants include Sport Chek, Laura, Urban Planet, Work Authority, Dollarama, Showhome Furniture, Winners, Buffet Yangtze and Walmart.
In closing, tomorrow is going to be a warm, sunny day and it would be a great afternoon/evening to come out to the Grassroots Farmers’ Market at Deerfoot City.
