MARKET TOURS

Half Day Summer Tour

Central Alberta in the summer means farmers’ markets. Head out with one of our guides to discover local food and unique vendors.

We get an early start, heading out before the market gets busy and then we have a chance to chat with many of the producers themselves. The vendors we visit varies from week to week and by market but the tour usually includes 5 to 8 of our favourites.

Join a tour on Saturdays at The Market at Red Deer or plan your own adventure at the Downtown Red Deer Market, Rocky Mountain House Market on Main or Red Deer’s public market.

Market Tour Highlights

  • Explore the bustling outdoor public market.
  • Learn about local producers and taste samples along the way.
  • Leave with recipes and ideas for locally sourced meals.

Perfect for: Anyone interested in local food. This tour requires walking through the market for 2 hours. This tour is recommended for those 13 or older.

This tour is owned and operated by Pursuit Adventures.
