Produce For August 25 and 29, 2020

by Aug 24, 20202020 Produce Update

As we reach the half-way mark of the season we would like to thank everyone for continuing to support the garden and the women of Rwanda. We know visiting the garden this year is a much different experience and we sincerely appreciate you adapting to the pandemic-related changes along with us. Many thanks to all!

Two new additions to this week’s list: baby leeks and squash.

The Garden market is open:

Tuesday, August 25 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Saturday, August 29 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Reminder: We’re operating a little differently this year due to the pandemic and would appreciate it if you could help keep us all safe by:

  • NOT coming to the Garden if you are sick
  • Wearing a mask
  • Keeping 2 meters between yourself and other customers and our volunteers

Please note: There’s no custom picking by volunteers or self-serve at the kiosk 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.

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 can’t miss it (we’re just across the road from the old barn). A map and further directions to the garden are available at:

See you at the Market!
