The City of Calgary has been partnering with local farms and distributors like YYC Growers, Fresh Routes and Broxburn Farm to operate fresh local food stands farmers markets at select C-train stations since 2017. The pop up markets have provided transit riders with easy access to local, healthy and affordable fresh food options.
This year, they are expanding the program to include new pop up farmers market sites at community hubs around Calgary. This will help us provide more Calgarians with improved access to healthy food options. YYC Growers, Fresh Routes and Broxburn Farm will be operating farmers markets from Tuesday to Saturday at these locations until Thanksgiving, on October 12.
