The Grassroots Deerfoot Farmers’ Market - 06.08.2019
|Event Date / Time:|
The Grassroots Deerfoot Farmers’ Market (which is formerly known as Grassroots Northland Farmers’ Market) was created in 1992 by three women in the community to raise money for some environmental issues. They successfully ran the market each week for 15 years! Since then, the Grassroots Skaters’ Foundation took over, building on the strong base.
The market is at Deerfoot City Mall in north Calgary and has earned valuable support from the mall and associated retailers as a “locator” and customer draw. Also they would like to ask that you peruse/visit other retailers at Deerfoot City if you are visiting the market – these retailers support the market and they (The Market) would like to see them realize increased foot traffic as well. Deerfoot City has seen many exciting and great changes in the past few years and there is some incredible stuff still to come.
Their “rain or shine” outdoor market runs 17 weeks, every Tuesday, from early June to the end of September. As an Alberta Approved Farmers’ Market, they adhere to rigorous standards of practice and quality.
