Farmers Markets in Edmonton- Where Your Food Comes From

In attempt to shift our eating toward locally grown fresh food, the next logical step is to seek food for sale from our local farmers in the growing Farmer’s Market industry. In Canada, a growing number of consumers are seeking out fresh, locally produced foods. A national study done in 2009 revealed that that 92% of consumers believe it is important to purchase food directly from the farmer, and likely even a higher percentage now in 2014. The number one reason why many individuals do not use Farmer’s markets is due to their lack of awareness of where a close by farmers market is located to their residence. Once people do visit their local farmers’ market, 96% of them had an experience that met or exceeded their expectations. In 2009, the impact of Canadian farmers’ markets on the Canadian economy was over $3 billion, indicating the vast potential this industry has with the increasing popularity for locally grown food!

Famers markets support the economy in a variety of ways. Their interaction with customers is more personal and allows valuable consumer feedback to be directly heard. This way vendors can efficiently respond to consumer needs. With this direct participation, individuals are more involved in shaping the food system by supporting the economic survival of primary producers who wish to function outside of the mainstream industrial food structure. With this opportunity, farmers can sell their goods locally thereby benefiting other local businesses in the same vicinity as the farmers market!
