Guide: The Most Kid-Friendly Farmer’s Markets in Edmonton + Area

Browsing the Farmer’s Market is one of those weekend (or weekday events) that’s a lot of fun for the kids, and the chance for you to discover some new local favourite. It’s the chance to grab produce for the week, and for our Edmonton kids, the chance to take part in Kid zone, a bounce castle or slide and gems like the Sprout Kids Club.

St. Albert Farmer’s Market | For the kids, there’s face painting, balloon lady, street musicians, singers – room to run a bit and lots of energy, and things for them to explore. As one of the larger markets, you’re sure to find everything from food for dinner, food trucks and those ‘extras’ that make the Farmer’s Market just so much fun to explore.
Market Hours: Saturdays, 10-3

City Market | This one makes the favourite because of the delicious popsicles from Cafe Bel Air, made with fresh ingredients that don’t mean the kids are going to get hopped up on sugar. Plus, the market is usually followed up with a run through the new spray feature downtown, to cool off.
