THE farmers & makers markeT

feeding communities and culture

THANK YOU Calgary for making our 5th anniversary 2022 season the best so far at the Farmers & Makers Market, and for keeping us a favourite weekly destination to shop locally made, baked and grown from our market vendors; a place to gather and connect with friends and neighbours, to enjoy live music at the Market Stage and wonderful free programming at our Kids Arts & Culture Program! 

Every week all market season long we're "feeding communities and culture" at the Farmers & Makers Market, and we are SO grateful for your continued support of our not-for-profit, Alberta Government Certified Alberta Approved Farmers Market.

The Farmers & Makers MArket at CSPACe

REOPENs MAY 27, 2023

saturdays 10am-2pm, year round

 

The Farmers & Makers Market at cSPACE returns May 27, 2023 and we're thrilled to announce that the market will once again be a year-round Saturday Farmers Market; Home to over 90 local farmers, growers, bakers & food makers, brewers, distillers and craftspeople and always free to attend and enjoy!

                   

In summer, the F&MM at cSPACE is host to over 50 vendor stalls, live music, food trucks and our free Kids Arts & Culture Program outdoors on the gorgeous grounds of cSPACE Arts & Community Hub.

                                                                                          

After Thanksgiving, the market moves inside cSPACE, filling 4 floors with vendors each week to ensure you can continue to shop from your favourite farms & vendors year-round!

                                                 

All year long the F&MM at cSPACE ensures that more than 90% of what you'll find at the market every Saturday is made, baked and grown by our vendors themselves - with most originating farther than 30km from the market.
