The Calgary Farmers’ Market is proud to announce that our family will be growing by 50,000 ft2! Our second location is due to arrive in 2022 in the new northwest community of Greenwich.
Our second location will be just 15 minutes from Calgary’s vibrant downtown core and less than an hour to the mountains. Across from WinSport Canada, the scenic neighbourhood of Greenwich is where urban sophistication meets active outdoor living.
Big things are happening at CFM West! We're excited to share that the structural steel is now complete. Fingers crossed for early spring to finish the remainder roof and walls. The construction crew is working hard to get the precast brick panels in place. Stay tuned for more information for Summer Pop-ups at our West location.

After unanticipated delays, we're delighted to see Calgary Farmers' Market West starting to take shape. If you have been on 16th Avenue NW recently you will notice the structural steel of our second location. The unseasonably warm weather has been on our side and we expect to see the building envelope construction roof, walls, doors, and windows over the next few months.

“We are elated with the support we’ve received from Calgarians sharing their excitement for our 2022 opening. Calgary Farmers’ Market West will be more than just another market, we’re building a community of like-minded small businesses that gain stability and success seeing new customers every week. Our unique retail environment will support over 70 local, family-owned businesses and will create more than 200 jobs. We just can’t wait to dig in!” - Stacey Petropoulos, General Manager.
The Calgary Farmers’ Market has been embraced by Calgary since our opening day on July 1st, 2004. For 15 years, Calgarians have continued to show up in droves every week to buy local produce, thoughtfully crafted goods and to make meaningful connections with vendors and their community. We’re very excited about our bright future as we break ground on our second location.
Our mission is to support the progress and growth of small local business. When they thrive, it invigorates our local economy, and creates a more diverse and vibrant city for us all. Our second location will also create more than 200 jobs, is already a long-awaited tourist attraction, and has Calgary’s northwest communities abuzz with anticipation for our arrival.
"This is a game changer for northwest Calgary! The Calgary Farmers’ Market in Greenwich is providing the opportunity for residents to buy local produce right in their community. The excitement for the new market is electrifying. Every other day, a northwest resident will ask me when the market is opening. Thank you to the Calgary Farmers’ Market and Mel-Cor Developments for investing in Ward 1 and for creating new jobs for Calgarians. I am confident that the Calgary Farmers’ Market West will be a success!" - Councillor Ward Sutherland, Ward 1.
With the majestic Rockies to the West, the striking downtown to the East, and the Trans-Canada & Stoney Trail tying them all together, Greenwich strikes the balance between location, convenience, and amenities. This walkable, connected community where families grow and neighbours gather is sure to be a key gathering spot for Northwest Calgarians.
"We're absolutely delighted to see our vision of this project coming together, and with Calgary Farmers' Market West being the cornerstone of it. It's like this relationship between the Calgary Farmers' Market and Melcor in Greenwich was meant to be; we're 2 Alberta founded and based organizations formed to promote small business and support our economy." - Darin Rayburn, President & CEO Melcor
We are excited to share some fresh news and images of our Greenwich location opening in 2022.
