I’m still in denial that it’s already halfway through August, but with the summer we’ve had, I guess it’s inevitable that beautiful weather seems to speed up time somehow. All we can do is enjoy it!
It was another glorious day at the City Market today
And some would say, perfect for hopscotch!
We still didn’t get downstairs as early as we wanted to, but still found we had a good selection of produce to choose from.
Eggplant from Sundog Organic Farm
Fennel from Sundog Organic Farm
Tomatoes from Sundog Organic Farm
Leeks from Sundog Organic Farm
Blackberries from Steve & Dan’s
Flowers from Kuhlmann’s
It was, as most weekends are, a busy day in the city. Over at Churchill Square, the Edmonton Latin Festival was going on, with music, salsa lessons and food! (It runs until August 14, 2011.)
Closer to the market, Art 4 the Alley was taking place in the alley behind the Armstrong Block. Patrons were invited to create art to line the alley, lanterns to string up, or simply take in some of the performances throughout the day. It was a great way to remind people about the potential of any space, even one that is currently dominated by dumpsters and potholes.

Loved the “stage”
