City Market Report: Week 15

With the overcast and windy weather, it felt like fall at the City Market today. You have to think the market administrators felt the same, given they put up the banners this week reminding everyone that the City Market will be vending indoors again after Thanksgiving at City Hall.

Yes to year-round!

The crowds definitely seemed smaller today, probably chased away by the clouds and numerous other festivals going on today, so there was still plenty to choose from by the time we reached the street.

We had missed Lactuca’s debut at the City Market a few weeks ago, but Travis was out in full force again today, with what I still think is one of the coolest vending “wagons” I’ve ever seen.

Bike-powered and self-contained, it’s almost as neat as the fact that he grows all of his micro-greens out of his lot in Westmount. Read more about him on Kevin’s blog if you haven’t already.

We’re looking forward to the Greater Edmonton Alliance farm tour tomorrow. Hope you enjoy your weekend too!
