Looking for a Saturday Pokémon Go spot? Look no further than the Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market. Weekend coffee ritual? Check. Grocery shopping? Check. Play Pokémon Go at nearby King Edward Park? Check. That’s a win, win, win!
What better way to get to know the locals than to buy produce and food from local farmers, bakers and artisans? Open year-round on Saturdays, this indoor marketplace is packed with 130 vendors hawking everything from fresh hummus and homemade perogies to gluten-free treats and handmade jewellery. Buy some crispy green onion cakes and sip on organic coffee while you take a leisurely stroll around. Edmonton and surrounding area also has many other outdoor markets worth checking out, too.
This year-round, indoor farmers’ market is older than I am. It’s grown from about 10 stalls in 1983 to more than 130 vendors in its current state. For many Edmontonians, Saturday morning means an early breakfast and shopping at the Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market. Must-visit stalls include Happy Camel (best hummus in the world!) and Theos Greek Kouzina (their melitzano salata is the greatest eggplant dip you’ll ever eat).
