City Market Report: Week 18 (plus Cornfest!)

We were blessed with another beautiful market day on Saturday, which always feels fortunate the later in the year that we get. Shoppers were our enjoying the sunshine at the City Market, though I wasn’t one of them myself! Beautiful day I was volunteering for Downtown Edmonton Community League’s Cornfest (more on that later), so […]

City Market Report: Week 16

Mack and I were honoured to have been asked to ring the opening bell at the City Market this morning! Honoured I know I was particularly fortunate, because it is the second time I’ve been asked to do so, but it was fun to open the market with Mack this time around. Mack rings the […]

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 […]

City Market Report: Week 14

Mack and I had great intentions to wake up early to have a leisurely stroll at the City Market yesterday before we had to drive to Viking for the Rge Rd 135  dinner at Nature’s Green Acres, but of course, that didn’t quite happen. We did end up getting almost everything we wanted, but at […]

City Market Report: Week 12

If today was any indication, it seems like the weather will cooperate this long weekend. The aisles of the City Market were basking in glorious sunshine. Martin Kerr was back busking in the square, and I know we’re not the only ones who believe it feels more like a market day when one can hear […]

City Market Report: Week 11 (and Dirt City, Dream City)

By the time we got downstairs to the City Market, it was later in the day and the rain had started to come down. Rainy market afternoon In some ways, this was good for us, because the selection of fresh produce was still quite good, but I acknowledge that the weather wasn’t what vendors were […]

City Market Report: Week 10

By the time Mack and I reached the City Market on Saturday, the weather had taken a turn for the worst, but for most early birds, the skies were just fine for shopping. But in spite of our late start, we were still able to pick up everything we needed (and a bit more!). This […]

City Market Report: Week 9

It was another scorcher in Edmonton on Saturday, but I think one of the best places to be on days like this is on the shaded aisles of the City Market! Enjoying the shade One of these days, I want to conjure enough courage to ask proud dog owners if I can photograph their cute […]

City Market Report: Week 8

Weekends like this are just glorious, and reminds us that there is no better place to spend the summer than Edmonton. The City Market was a hub of activity today; I wouldn’t be surprised if they reached some of their highest attendance numbers for the season so far. High traffic area The Feats Festival of […]
