City Market Report: Week 16

Mack and I were honoured to have been asked to ring the opening bell at the City Market this morning!

Honoured

I know I was particularly fortunate, because it is the second time I’ve been asked to do so, but it was fun to open the market with Mack this time around.

It also meant we were at the market early enough for our best selection of produce this year.

I was also volunteering for the Downtown Edmonton Community League today, where we were selling 2013 memberships. We were also promoting DECL’s annual Corn Fest, which is taking place on September 15, 2012, from 11am-3pm at Beaver Hills House Park (Jasper Ave & 105 Street). Come by that day to get some free corn, and to renew your community league membership!

William and Chris geek out for #yegdt

Speaking of #yegdt, the City Market released their new bags today that incorporate the I [heart] yegdt logo. The interior is even lined with handy separators for bottles! Pick them up from the info tent for $4 a pop.

The market was also overtaken with brides, a stunt to promote Mile Zero Dance’s Wedding Crasher Party Fundraising Dance, taking place on September 21, 2012. It’s a pretty ingenious idea – when else would you have the opportunity to re-wear your wedding or bridesmaid gown?

It really was just another day downtown. See you at the market next week!
