Looking for a local, true farmer's market in Alberta? Scroll down this page and select your region of the state for a list of farm markets, farm stands, roadside stands, even garden fruit and vegetable stands and seasonal produce markets in Alberta, sorted by county. Markets offering organic or sustainably grown produce are identified by the words "organic" and/or "sustainable" in Green, next to their name. If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website.
And if you know of one I missed and want to add it or correct the information, please let me know!

There seems to be no commonly agreed-upon way to organize or subdivide Alberta,
so I've roughly adopted the Indian regions map, as it appears to group areas
by population centers as well as geography.
Yellow = Edmonton area
Light Orange / Tan = Camrose-Drumheller area
Light blue = Red Deer area
Gray = Calgary area
Blue-purple = Southeast Alberta, including Medicine Hat and Lethbridge
Blue = Northwest Alberta, including Grand Prairie and Athabasca
Green = Northeast Alberta, including Fort McMurray
Orange = Southwest Alberta, including Banff, Jasper and Rocky Mountain House
