Produce For September 15 And 19, 2020

by Sep 14, 20202020 Produce Update

Please note: Saturday’s market will be closing at 12:30 pm.

Due to the cooler nighttime temperatures we’ve pulled all of the basil, both sweet and purple. The sweet basil is suitable for making pesto, blanching and freezing, or drying. New additions to this week’s list: purple basil, radishes and green tomatoes.

The Garden market is open:

Tuesday, September 15 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Saturday, September 19 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Reminder: We’re operating a little differently this year due to the pandemic and would appreciate it if you could help keep us all safe by:

  • NOT coming to the Garden if you are sick
  • Wearing a mask
  • Keeping 2 meters between yourself and other customers and our volunteers

Please note: There’s no custom picking by volunteers or self-serve at the kiosk 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.

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!
