by Sep 26, 20222022 Produce Update

We’ll have squash and pumpkins this week, and spicy pickled beans from Mojo Jojo Pickles! Bulk sales of beets, onions, and potatoes continue – $10 for a 10 pound bag!

Please note the changes in Tuesday evening hours through September as we lose daylight. 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.

Year of the Garden events are over. Thanks so much to all the artists, musicians, yoga instructors, and gardening, flower and food experts who generously shared their expertise at the events.

Rwandan handicrafts from Tubahumurize will be available at Saturday markets (weather permitting).

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!
