Red Deer Market Tour

A Saturday morning tradition for nearly 50 years, the public market is one of the largest in Alberta. Head out with one of our guides to discover local food and unique vendors.

We get an early start, heading out at 8:30 am before the market gets busy and when we have a chance to chat with many of the producers themselves. The vendors we visit varies from week to week but the tour usually includes 5 to 8 of our favourites, including:

  • Black Forest German Bakery: Fresh bread and pretzels from this Olds based bakery.
  • Humble Hummus: Locally made hummus with ever changing flavours like mango chipotle, dill pickle and peanut butter chocolate along with the more classic offerings.
  • Innisfail Growers: Local farmers working together to bring a variety of fresh and preserved products to market.
  • Klein Farm: Free range chicken and sausages from a local farm.
  • Pearson´s Berry Farm: Fresh baked pies and more.
  • Pursuit Provisions: We´re at the market each week with our ice pops and s´mores carts.
  • Rise Juice: Cold pressed juice made locally in Lacombe.
  • S4 Greenhouses: Heirloom tomatoes, peppers, cucumber and lettuce produced in the nearby Gull Lake area.
  • Sylvan Star Cheese: Award winning Gouda cheese.
  • Thirst for Paradise: A market fixture, Phil imports his own coffee from his native Papa New Guinea.
  • Troubled Monk Brewery: We might not be able to taste their delicious beer at the market but we still get to enjoy their craft sodas!
  • Wild Brewing Co.: Locally brewed kombucha.
