Announcing Medicine Hat's first ever WINTER FARMERS MARKET!

I love the farmers market. It's one of those things that I look forward to every Spring and am so sad to see end come Fall. I look to larger centre's, such as Calgary, who have a plethora of indoor markets that continue year round, with just a fragment of tainted jealousy. Medicine Hat has no such place during the cold, winter months.

That is until this year!

For the first time ever, a winter farmers market is on the table for those of us in Medicine Hat and area! Its so exciting, because now we have a place we can go to get some good, home baked goods, local greenhouse veggies, delicious meats and fabulous other products, the whole year through!

The winter Farmers Market is scheduled to kick-off October 18th from 4pm-8pm and will be held in the grand stand building at the stampede grounds. It will continue every Thursday thereafter at the same time. I have had the honour of being asked to be the market manager, which is so exciting considering my passion for supporting local. I really would love to see this market succeed, but in order for this to happen, we need YOU to come out and show your support and purchase product from your local businesses and farms the winter through!

There are still tables available, so if you, or someone you know, has a home-based business of sorts that would fit the market feel, please contact myself via email at or by phone 403-866-1311. I will then pass on the information to the powers that be for a final review and confirmation. If you have any further questions regarding renting a table or anything else market related, you can also contact me and if I don't know the answer, I will find out for you (I'm new at this too, so bare with me :)).

We are so excited to see you at our first ever winter Farmers Market on October 18th at 4pm! Spread the word and show your support!

Till next time!
