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.
