This weekend is Alberta Open Farm Days and the wrap up of Local Food Week. 

I’ll be at the George Pegg Botanical Garden on Saturday for the Rural Roots Farmer Showcase and I would love to connect with you there.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 14, 2021 | CELEBRATING ALBERTA OPEN FARM DAYS & LOCAL FOOD WEEK

10:00AM TO 4:00PM | FREE ADMISSION!

The Rural Roots Farmer Showcase Committee has been hard at work organizing a one-of-a-kind event that highlights local food and the farmers who produce it. On August 14, 2021, George Pegg Botanic Garden will be alive with activity, offering visitors a unique experience in a charming location. 

Planned to coincide with Alberta Open Farm Days, this year’s outdoor event pairs a daytime vendor market with an evening picnic-style meal and concert. Connecting consumers with local producers is our goal. 

Pegg Garden is just north of Glenevis, in Lac Ste. Anne County.  Admission to the market is free.

In one location we have gathered a collection of ag producers representing their farms and showcasing their fresh products in an open-air market. Discover a unique variety of exceptional local meat products, farm-fresh eggs, organic and naturally grown vegetables and fruits, flavourful preserves, locally crafted cheese, aromatic coffee beans, and more!  Members of the Cherhill 4-H Multi Club are ready to show you their interactive displays and introduce you to their feathered friends. 

Along with the market, activities for all ages include Garden tours, children’s crafts, and an antique ID contest. Walk with chef Doreen Prei at 3:00PM as she meets our vendors- pick up some tips for your food purchases.  Enter a draw for a chance to win a Food Incubator Box filled with new products from farms around the province.
