40 Years Young - The Stony Plain Farmers Market - Providing Local Families with Alberta Produce Since 1974 | Spruce Grove Stony Plain Parkland County Real Estate | Barry Twynam

Residents of Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, Parkland County and the Edmonton region regularly make the trip to Stony Plain to shop at one of Alberta’s oldest official farmers’ markets. The market is celebrating its 40th year in 2014 and shows no signs of stopping as its popularity refuses to die down. All residents of Stony Plain and Spruce Grove owe it to themselves to spend at least one Saturday shopping at one of the best farmers’ markets in the region.

40 Years of Offering Quality Produce

Everybody wants to eat healthier, but it can be really hard to find food that is up to the standards needed. Thankfully the Stony Plain Farmers’ Market has a long history of offering farm fresh food and produce so their shoppers can guarantee their food will be going from farm to table. Fresh food and produce is becoming more popular and harder to find, which is why farmers’ markets are gaining popularity all across Canada. The Stony Plain Farmers’ Market has no shortage of farmers willing to provide good and fresh food to the residents of Parkland County. However, food isn’t the only thing to be found at the market.

Over 50 Rotating Vendors

Farmers’ markets are now known for more than just fresh food. Unique vendors selling hand-made crafts, jewellery, clothing and gifts fill the market stalls to sell their products to shoppers. Shopping at the market has become an all-day event for families as they browse some of this year’s big vendors which include Sammy’s Sweet Shop, which sells homemade chocolate and muffins, and Wandeis Doggy Delights, which makes doggie treats for the four-legged friends visiting the market. A full list of vendors is always available online on their official site so people don’t have to go in blind if they don’t want to.

Runs Every Saturday Right up Until Christmas

Most farmers’ markets in Canada fall victim to the winter weather. Some markets don’t even last through the fall before they shut down for the year. The Stony Plain Farmers’ Market doesn’t close down for the season until December 20, 2014, giving residents and visitors the chance to do some Christmas shopping right up to the last minute. With the number of vendors they have there are many great gift opportunities, making sure everybody gets crossed off the Christmas list. The market takes on a new light around December and is a great way to spend a Saturday during the holidays.
