It was another scorcher in Edmonton on Saturday, but I think one of the best places to be on days like this is on the shaded aisles of the City Market!
Enjoying the shade
One of these days, I want to conjure enough courage to ask proud dog owners if I can photograph their cute puppies for a post similar to this one, but until then, you’ll have to make do with Willow, who Marianne and Charles were dog sitting for.
Looking shy, Willow!
Last week may have been all about carrots, but this week the potatoes were out in full force!
Potatoes from Sundog Organic
From Riverbend Gardens
Of course, there was plenty of other fresh produce to choose from as well, including the first of BC’s stone fruits – peaches and apricots!
Peaches from Steve and Dan’s
Apricots from Steve and Dan’s

Kale from Kuhlmann’s

Lettuce from Riverbend Gardens
A mountain of carrots from Riverbend Gardens
After the market wrapped up, the action wasn’t all done on the street – there was a music video being shot on the roof of the McKenney Building this afternoon!
Hope you enjoyed your Saturday too!

oooh, the market is looking good! I’m looking forward to having a free weekend so I can make it there 🙂
I’m sure it won’t compare to the markets in Amsterdam, but it will be home :).
Hi Sharon– I’m a long-time reader, first-time commenter–
Dog people are OVERJOYED to have their pets fawned over! It’s one of the reasons why it’s great to have a dog. They’re icebreakers, and for those who are shy (like me) that’s a god(dog?)send. You’ll find that especially of those who take their dogs out to festivals and markets.
Thanks for reading and commenting, Mari! Good to hear your perspective as a dog owner, but as a non-dog owner, I have to say when I hear that people treat their dogs like their children, it makes me a bit weary. If I asked to take a photo of someone’s child, I’m sure it wouldn’t sound good! Well, I’ll try to build up the courage at some point this year :).
