(Red Deer, AB) – For the third year running, the Downtown Farmers’ Market will once again provide an opportunity for market enthusiasts and foodies to shop local.
Starting May 30 and continuing every Wednesday until October 3, the market will be open from 4-7pm. This year, the market will move to little Gaetz Avenue and span from Alexander Way (48th Street) to Ross Street, keeping 49th Street open to traffic. Businesses along Ross Street have been buzzing with excitement for the markets’ anticipated move. Many will extend hours on Wednesday nights and open their doors to potential new business. Candace Dunning, owner of Hot Pot Studio agrees. “We at Hot Pot Studio think that the Downtown Market will be an exciting way for customers to paint a piece of their imagination and kick off the summer fun that we already enjoy on Little Gaetz.”
As a recent officially approved farmers’ market, the market welcomes back local and fresh producers from around Central Alberta. As well this year, new vendors such as ice cream trucks and flower shops offer a diverse and delectable sampling of Red Deer’s bountiful producers. There is something for everyone: local fruits and vegetables for heath enthusiasts; perogies, kettle corn, and waffles for comfort food indulgers; flowers for the green thumbs; ice cream for everyone; and much more.
