Sunnyside Farmers Market 2010 - Calgary

TSAW Jun 9, 2010 07:15 PM

I decided this year I would go by the Sunnyside Farmer's Market every Wednesday. I'm driving right by there anyway! It's only 2 weeks in, and seems a little sparse but still good stuff

So far, I've been loving the little thai curry kits from Thai Manna (good eats for a busy/&/or lazy person person like me!).I've enjoyed some really nice baked goods. Jenn Chick Cookies stand out as super delicious but a little too rich for me $5 for 6 MINI size cookies.

Has anyone else been or have any recommendations of vendors at this market?

    Ravenwood Ranch, authentic Berkshire Pork and excellent natural beef. Pork is reasonably priced and with incredible marbling, it's like the real pork you had 30 years ago!

      TSAW - They list Route 40 Soup Company as a vendor - just wondering if you saw them there?

        I ran in quickly yesterday just before closing in the rain and definitely saw Route 40 there. I got a great apple cinnamon pound cake from Watermill Bakery ($6). Need to definitely go back when I have more time and the weather's nicer...

          yep they were there. I bought corn/chicken chorizo/yam soup which was very good. Just add milk! $13 for 4 large portions.

            Thanks alau2 and TSAW.
            I wish I had known and ventured out in the rain.
            Today (and yesterday) would have been a good soup day.

            I will have to hit them up next week.

              Why,. oh why don't they combine this market with the flea market on the weekends? I think it would be a big hit, but I know that there is probably no space. For a lot of us the weekends are our only chance to go. Thanks Tsaw and Katidyd!

                Space and the fact that at least some of the vendors are at other markets on weekends. for example I've seen the German baker Sylvan/Red Deer fri/sat/sun
