Local Food Week is a celebration of Alberta local food and local food producers.
During this week, we want Albertans to discover new Alberta food products and meet the many passionate and talented farmers, growers and food makers that call our province home.
Local Food Week runs Sunday, August 11th to Sunday, August 18th inclusive.
During the week, there are a number of key events and activities planned, in every part of our province, to help you celebrate Alberta local food and food producers:
- On August 17 and 18th, many of Alberta’s working farms will be hosting an “open house” through Open Farm Days, inviting you to see first hand how these farms operate.
- More than 43 farmers’ markets will be hosting events or activities on their market day to celebrate Local Food Week. Check this list to see what markets are doing and when.
- Alberta on the Plate is a new culinary festival celebrating local food and drink at many restaurants around Alberta. Learn more and find out what restaurants are participating.
