Produce for August 28 and September 1, 2018

by Aug 27, 20182018 Produce Update

We have one addition to this week’s list: leeks! And if you’re passionate about pesto, now’s the time to find your favourite recipe! Even though the temperature dropped to 4°C early Sunday morning, the basil still looks amazing and we have lots!

This week the garden market is open: Tuesday, August 28, 2018 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday, September 1, 2018 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

For those of you who haven’t visited the Garden before, we are 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:

Please bring your own bags for produce. See you at the market!
