We're Part of your Stories
The Calgary Farmers’ Market is not just about transactions; it’s a vibrant space that mirrors the diversity and uniqueness of our community. With a wide array of vendors, we aim to offer something special for every visitor – a product, a taste, an experience that resonates with them.
We've Come a Long Way
After a long construction journey, we opened our new home just off Heritage Drive and Blackfoot Trail on April 21, 2011. This 55,000 sq. ft. market draws over 1 million annual visitors and is home to 78 vendors providing shoppers with fresh local produce, meat, poultry, international food, organic goods, jewelry, art and more. The space is bright with wide aisles, classic wood timbers, and an eclectic food hall that’s home to 20 family-owned restaurants with seating for over 300 guests, a two-story glass atrium, and an interactive Barnyard Kids play area.
We've Got a Bright Future
The Calgary Farmers’ Market is proud to announce that our home has grown by 54,000 square feet! Our second location opened Summer 2022 in the new northwest community of Greenwich.
Our West Location is 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. Experience Old New York with the spirit of the Rocky Mountains. The second location offers an engaging experience in a welcoming space to eat, connect, and be entertained in al-fresco style shopping and dining areas.
We Are What You Eat
We all have a hand in shaping this world of ours, one bite at a time. But making better choices about the food that fuels us doesn’t have to be as complicated as moving to a farm and raising chickens. It can be as simple as replacing a grocery run with a visit to our makers, bakers, and growers to see and savour what they do best. Whether you’re in the market for a treat, a feast, or gathering goods to challenge your chops in the kitchen, we’re here advocating for progress—not perfection. We want to help balance the go-go-go with taking it slow. Believing that small choices make a big difference is what got us here, seeing how many of you believe the same is what keeps us here and helps us grow. We are what you eat. Dig In.
Something for Everyone
We Proudly Support Local
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. Many smaller local vendors don’t have the resources to lease large spaces or compete against big box stores on their own. We are proud to have built a community of like-minded small businesses that gain stability and success seeing new customers every week.
The Calgary Farmers’ Market is an Alberta Approved Farmer’s Market. This means we strictly follow the 80/20 rule, where a minimum of 80% of our vendors need to “make it, bake it or grow it.” This makes a huge difference in assuring that our Market caters to vendors who are producing products locally. The goal behind the Alberta Approved Farmer’s Market Association is to strengthen and support Alberta growers and to foster the development of Alberta products.
