City Market 2012 Winter Season Kick-off!
Although the City Market shifted from its 104 Street location last week to Churchill Square (as a part of the Olde Time Fair on the Square), today marked its first date inside their winter home of City Hall.
Inside the City Room
Mack and I arrived at the tail end of the market, but the selection of fresh produce was still very good (we picked up the last of Steve & Dan’s blueberries, for instance). It also looks like there is a new vegetable vendor this year – Erdmann’s, who would be familiar to those shoppers who frequent the St. Albert, Callingwood, Festival Place and Mill Woods markets.
The City Market did a great job of posting vendor maps for the 104 Street market – I am hoping a similar list will be cropping up for the winter edition. The signage was also lacking today – no sandwich boards could be seen, either directly outside City Hall or at Churchill Square directing patrons towards the market.
Great to see a fair number of vendors!
The City Market inside City Hall runs from 10am-3pm every Saturday (except December 22 and 29, 2012) until May 18, 2013. Hope to see you there!
