Calgary Farmer’s Market

calgary farmer's market

At Richardson Way SW and Richard Rd SW.  I’m exploring and cycled to the Calgary Farmer’s Market on a recent sunny Sunday.  Great place to get your organic foods – meats, vegetables, fruit and a lot of the bakeries will let you have a small taste of their wares.  You can get lunch or a snack if you need a break while you are shopping. 

Someday organic foods will be cheaper than the alternative – I hope!

If you want something a little more, just across from the market is the Wild Rose Brewery. Sit outside and have lunch and a brew.  At the other end of that building is the wine store. 

Both buildings are on the former grounds of Currie Barracks – used to be the home of the Canadian Forces in Calgary – they kept their aircraft there.

Addendum(May 2011) – This market has closed down – see our entry on one of the new markets – MacLead Trail just south of Glenmore.
