I made a trip to our recently(1-2 years ago)opened farmers market. In Calgary, Alberta, it is the Symons Valley Farmers Market. We have been so happy with the retailers and the people are so helpful and friendly.
I went specifically to buy some grass fed beef and organic chicken. We get alot of those things from Sunworks Farm. They are an Alberta company and they had celiac issues with their children many years ago and started the farm so that they could eat! Wow. That is dedicated.
I went downstairs to see some of the newer vendors there. As soon as I came down, I was greeted by Dawn at her new booth. She was so excited to show me her greenhouse tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers, I couldn’t help but buy some to support someone that passionate. The kids and I all got to sample the Non-GMO yumminess that she was selling.
If I hadn’t mentioned it before, I love to support passionate people and the projects that they work on. Shirley’s Greenhouses(that is Dawn and her husbands, business name) are out of Didsbury and they sell to locals through farmers markets and small grocery stores.
Vive le small grower!
