Support Local Artists: Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market

This past Saturday we took an afternoon stroll through the Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market and were pleased to find some interesting vendors there! We sampled (and purchased) chocolate peanut butter covered nibs, lemon dill mustard and organic wine. And we found some cute, handmade rings and necklaces!

There were beautiful potted flowers and herbs and a multitude of other crafts and creations! The Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market is just off Whyte Ave and is open from 8am to 3pm every Saturday. Whichever city you live in, be sure to check out your local farmers’ market. You never know what you’ll find!

Support Local Artists: A Tribute to The Citadel

To all the men, women and children that were part of any Citadel production this season… BRAVO! I had the pleasure of viewing 5 shows: Death of a Salesman, The Rock Horror Show, God of Carnage, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Sound of Music. What an eclectic mix! From dramas to comedies to musicals, each show was equally entertaining and fascinating! The acting and vocals were astounding, the set and costume design were fabulous and the special effects were magnificent! Each production could not run smoothly without the hard work of many actors, stagehands, directors, and various other crew members. Live theatre truly is incredible and experiencing each of these plays in one of the intimate theatres at the Citadel was definitely worth-while. In my opinion, the Citadel is one of Edmonton’s best treasures!
