Farmers' markets are a popular agri-tourism attraction in Alberta, providing a great shopping experience in a relaxed atmosphere. The Alberta government, through the Alberta Approved Farmers’ Market Program, helps ensure market managers and vendors have the information they need to be successful in their roles and keep your visit safe.

Over 140 Alberta approved farmers' markets serve up some of the most nutritious, fresh, local products. Along most highways in the province, the Sunnygirl logo lets you know there is an approved farmers' market nearby. Shoppers can talk to the person who grew the carrots, raised the chicken, baked the bread, produced the jam, or knitted the sweater. Each approved farmers' market in Alberta is independently operated and reflects the rich culture of its community. Did you know that shoppers spend an average of $70 per farmers' market visit?
