Produce For October 15, 2022

by Oct 10, 20222022 Produce Update

Please note that there are no more Tuesday evening markets. Saturday markets will continue until we run out of produce or the weather turns (stay tuned – probably just a couple more Saturdays). New for this week is pear butter from Mojo Jojo Pickles! Bulk sales of potatoes will continue – $10 for a 10 pound bag!

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:

See you at the Garden!
