Summer Tastes Best at Calgary’s Seasonal Farmers Markets

Calgary Seasonal Farmers Market (Family Fun Calgary)

There are many fabulous food producers in and around Calgary and the city’s many seasonal farmers markets give us all the opportunity to take advantage of their products when they’re at their absolute freshest! (If you’re reading this between October and May, see the year-round farmers market options in Calgary.) You can also check out our night markets link for a different type of market. Here’s a round-up of some of Calgary and area’s finest seasonal farmers markets:

Bearspaw Lions Farmers Market

Every Sunday morning through the summer months you can visit the vendors and peruse their wares for fantastic food or that special original gift. The Bearspaw Farmers’ Market offers over 100 top quality vendors and a full breakfast menu in the Lion’s Hall, where you’ll find 10 more great vendors. This Farmer’s Market is extremely popular with Calgary and area families. There is free parking, but it’s sometimes difficult to find a parking spot so please be patient. Also, the Lion’s Hall has been extensively renovated; the market is run by the Bearspaw Lions, and all money raised by the Lions from table rentals goes to charity. So make this market a regular stop for your family this summer!
