Edmonton Downtown Farmers Market Shuts Down
The Edmonton Downtown Farmers Market closed permanently on January 28th, marking the end of an era.
The market moved into the GWG/Army & Navy/Red Strap building on 97th Street and 103rd Avenue in 2019. The COVID pandemic and high operating costs of being in the building, which is over a century old, resulted in the association operating the market voting to cease operations and declare bankruptcy.
Here's hoping that the market can eventually be revived - it's the oldest farmers market in the city and one of downtown's gems.
The photos here were taken on the market's last day of operations.
