Farm Fresh Food

In season, berries are ripe for the picking in the forests surrounding Bonnyville and Cold Lake. Nothing can compare to the taste of wild saskatoons and blueberries – you can eat them by the handful or fill several buckets. Wild raspberries and strawberries abound, but they are a little harder to find.

Farmers’ Markets

There are four farmers’ markets in the area, featuring an abundance of mouth-watering food. Pack your bags with fresh produce, hand-picked berries and homemade tasty treats.

Bonnyville’s Farmers’ Markets are open year-round, on Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Beaver River Fish and Game Building (4402-54 Avenue) and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Bonnyville and District Centennial Centre (4313-50 Avenue).

Cold Lake hosts a Farmers’ Market every Thursday, June through to September from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Exhibition Park (4608-38 Avenue). There are also three special Christmas markets in December.

Glendon hosts markets throughout the summer and before Christmas, check our Events Calendar at Event Calendar.
