After so many dismal market days this year, it feels like we’ve earned this extended summer. There were many people taking advantage of it at the City Market today.
We had a prior engagement in the morning, but finally made it to the market this afternoon. There was actually still a decent selection for late in the day.

We missed the market last week, so didn’t see the debut of Van Os Dairy to the City Market. Van Os sells organic milk (processed by Saxby Foods), and will soon also start offering butter, yogurt, cream and cheese as well.

It’s great that local, organic milk is now accessible at the market! You can read more about Van Os and Saxby in this article by Jud Schultz.
As a part of Community League Day on September 17, the Downtown Edmonton Community League is hosting Corn Fest over at Beaver Hills House Park (105 Street and Jasper Avenue). If you’re at the market next Saturday, come by for some free corn! See you at the market next week!
