Produce For October 5 And 9, 2021

by Oct 5, 20212021 Produce Update

Happy Thanksgiving, Green & Gold Garden supporters! Here’s the produce that we’ll have for your Thanksgiving weekend! This week we will also have elderberry syrup, pickled beans, and tomato paste for sale, thanks to the wonderful Mojo Jojo Pickles.

As the end of season approaches we also have some vegetables available in larger, bulk quantities.

The Rwandan handicrafts from Tubahumurize will also be available at the Saturday market (weather permitting).

Please note this is the last week for the Tuesday evening markets. Saturday markets will continue for the next week or two, weather permitting. Garden market hours are:

Tuesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

COVID Protocols Reminder: The pandemic has been difficult for all of us. The Green & Gold Community Garden is following current public health guidelines. For the safety of our volunteers and customers, we continue to encourage physical distancing and wearing masks. We want to make everyone feel welcome and safe at the garden!

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.

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 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!
