I get many people coming to this blog searching for the farmer's markets. Many end up at my post on the now defunct Calgary Farmer's Market which used to be located near Richardson Way SW near the university. If you are not already aware of this - there are a couple of new markets - the one that we like to go to is on MacLeod Trail just south of Glenmore on the west side: Kingsland Farmer's Market
I wandered through yesterday taking a few pictures to try and communicate what is available.
Everything from mead: (Try a taste...)
...to a good assorment of organic fruits and vegetables:
...desserts to die for!!! courtesy of Banuka Bakery - (I cannot walk by this stand without purchasing some of his baklava): (You can find more at #7a, 7640 Fairmount Drive, S.E.)

I love the lemon marmalade and they have some very good red pepper jelly.
There is also a good choice of meats, spiced and otherwise. Buy some dutch cheese or some eggs. Some very good coffee and tea available and plenty of places to sit if you want a break or if you go there for lunch:
Open Thursday through Sunday. Enjoy!!
