Edmonton Downtown Farmers Market

About This Market

The Edmonton Downtown Farmers Market (EDFM), located in a historic building at the heart of Downtown Edmonton, serves as a vibrant community hub for locally-sourced and -made products. It holds the title of Edmonton’s oldest farmer’s market, having served the community since 1903. The market prides itself on creating a family-friendly environment that is both affordable and accessible, offering an array of fresh, organic produce and hand-crafted artisan goods.

Open Saturdays from 9 am to 3 pm and Sundays from 11 am to 3 pm, the EDFM provides free parking to patrons, in-house services, classes, weekly events, buskers, and free customer Wi-Fi. Visitors can enjoy a range of activities including an art gallery, yoga sessions, a latte or dessert in the market’s spacious second-floor area, and a variety of community events and live music on select dates.

The market supports local families, with many vendors running family businesses and farms. It advocates for environmental sustainability, local economy, health benefits, and the social experience of shopping local. Special events, such as caricature artists, live bands, and themed markets like the YEG Artisan Christmas Market and Old Fashion Christmas Market, add to the market’s appeal. Moreover, the market encourages community participation through various opportunities such as becoming a vendor, busker, or volunteer.

The Edmonton Downtown Farmers Market emphasizes the importance of supporting local, with their “8 Reasons Why Buying Local Makes a Difference” initiative, highlighting the benefits of purchasing from local producers and artisans. They also offer a streamlined process for vendors to become verified through the Alberta Farmers’ Market Association’s online program, further ensuring a high-quality shopping experience for patrons.
