City Market Report: Week 15
With the overcast and windy weather, it felt like fall at the City Market today. You have to think the market administrators felt the same, given they put up the banners this week reminding everyone that the City Market will be vending indoors again after Thanksgiving at City Hall.
Yes to year-round!
The crowds definitely seemed smaller today, probably chased away by the clouds and numerous other festivals going on today, so there was still plenty to choose from by the time we reached the street.
Corn was out in full force – at Riverbend Gardens
And the baby variety from Greens, Eggs and Ham (the entire thing, leaves and all, is edible! It tasted like corn shoots to us)
Multi-coloured baby eggplant from Greens, Eggs and Ham
Gorgeous carrots from Sundog Organic
Beets from Sundog Organic
Fennel from Sundog Organic
Giant zucchini and squash from Kuhlmann’s
Coronation grapes from Steve & Dan’s
We had missed Lactuca’s debut at the City Market a few weeks ago, but Travis was out in full force again today, with what I still think is one of the coolest vending “wagons” I’ve ever seen.
Travis Kennedy of Lactuca
Bike-powered and self-contained, it’s almost as neat as the fact that he grows all of his micro-greens out of his lot in Westmount. Read more about him on Kevin’s blog if you haven’t already.
We’re looking forward to the Greater Edmonton Alliance farm tour tomorrow. Hope you enjoy your weekend too!
