We’ve added beans and carrots to this week’s list.

The garden market is open Tuesday, August 9, 2016 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. And Saturday, August 13, 2016 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:

See you at the market!
