Lovin' La Vida Local
Farmers' Markets like City Market Downtown, the Old Strathcona Farmers Market and 124 Grand Market are making it easier than ever to support local. Edmonton made jewellery, clothing, art and unique home goods are all on the menu, as well as unique food trucks, fresh produce and outdoor entertainment.
Here's a tip: stop by the market in the morning and gather a spread for a picnic lunch in the river valley. With a plethora of prime picnic spots like Hawrelak Park scattered throughout the valley, there's plenty of opportunity to take a break and play a game of Frisbee!
