Produce For October 7, 2023
Only Saturday markets for the remainder of the season (which, we’re hoping will be another couple of weeks, weather permitting.)
Bulk sales of potatoes, onions and beets continue ($12 for a 10-pound bag), and still lots of garlic to stock up on too.
Please see below for a Lunch & Learn event at the Garden this Wednesday.
Market hours this week are:
Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Please join us for a free Lunch & Learn hosted by the Edmonton Social Planning Council: “Community Gardens: Growing Food & Building Community”
- At noon, on Wednesday, October 4, at the Green & Gold Community Garden
- Admission is free & all are welcome

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. A whiteboard with produce prices will be on display for customers.
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: www.greengoldgarden.com/visit.
See you at the Garden!
