Produce For September 12 And 16, 2023
Time to stock up for fall and winter with our bulk sales of potatoes, onions and beets ($12 for a 10-pound bag).
Also, our garlic has now cured & should last through the winter if properly stored (in a cool, dark, dry place).
And, we have tomatoes ripe and ready, and some perfect seconds for sauce.
Please note our shorter Tuesday market hours.
Market hours this week are:
Tuesday from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Handicrafts from the women of Tubahumurize, in Rwanda, are available at the Saturday markets (weather permitting).
Lecture at the University of Alberta: The Right to Food: Imagine Zero Hunger
Lecture by Dr. Michael Fakhri (free & open to the public, but registration is required), Thursday, September 21, 2023, 7pm – 10pm. For more information & to register: https://www.ualberta.ca/events/international/the-right-to-food.html
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!
