Last Market – Produce For October 22, 2022
Sadly, the last market for this season will be on Saturday, October 22.
Bulk sales of potatoes will continue – $10 for a 10 pound bag! After this week we may have potatoes still available for bulk sales. If you are interested in purchasing potatoes in bulk, and can’t make it to the market this Saturday, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll arrange a pick up time.
Market hours this week are:
Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Please note: There’s no custom picking by volunteers or self-serve at the kiosk again this year. Instead, we have a designated shopping area at the front of the garden. Please line up at the south end and a volunteer will help guide you through the shopping area filling a bag with the pre-picked/packaged produce you choose to buy. A cashier will be located at the north end of the shopping area.
We want to make everyone feel welcome and safe at the garden, so please feel free to wear a mask if you want to. Hand sanitizer will also be available.
Location: For those of you who haven’t visited before, the Garden is located on the South Campus of the University of Alberta. Enter the University Farm off 60th Ave. Turn left at the T intersection (118th St) and you’ll see us just across the road from the old barn. On transit – we’re about a 15 minute walk from the South Campus LRT station. A map and further directions to the garden are available at: www.greengoldgarden.com/visit
See you at the Garden!
