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!

The Fringe is back in Edmonton and it’s one of my favorite summer festivals! With live original theatre performances occuring daily (from improvs to comedies to dramas) there’s always something to see and all shows are $10-$15 a ticket. If you aren’t into watching plays, you can always just wander the grounds in Old Strathcona, have a bite to eat, and catch a street performer act here and there.

For a list of performances and to buy tickets, go to www.fringetheatre.ca
