Not able to make it to the farm?

Not to worry you may be able to find our veggies somewhere near by, we attend a number of markets in Calgary and work with others in Red Deer and Canmore to distribute our veggies in those areas.

Markets we attend

Shirleys Greenhouse will be carrying a selection of carrots and potatoes through the winter while supplies last. You can find them at the following locations.
Avenita Market in Calgary
Hillhurst Sunnyside Market in Calgary
Uptown Market in Olds

Alberta Farmers Market Association

Most of Alberta’s farmers markets are apart of the Alberta Farmers Market Association (AFMA). What the association does is support farmers markets across Alberta along with setting standards for it’s members. AFMA approved markets must abide by a 80-20 rule. This means that at least 80% of the vendors must be selling local Alberta Produce. It is often BC Fruit that makes up the remaining 20% of produce sold at the market. This helps small local farms avoid competition from lower quality & lower priced products from other provinces.

Not from Calgary? Some of the great people we work with may be closer to where you live!

Thats right, we have teamed up with other great producers and food networks to help us distribute our fresh veggies. By working with others we are able to focus more time in the gardens and with our families. We would like to thanks these people for helping us out.

Shirley’s Greenhouses

Shirley’s Greenhouses are best known for their Cucumbers, Tomatoes & Peppers which can be found at many seasonal farmers markets including Hillhurst Sunnyside Farmers Market & Airdrie Farmers Market.  They carry our root veggies at the two year round markets,  Symons Valley Farmers Market and Market on Mecleod.  Their veggies are not Organic, however they do not use any pesticides in their greenhouses.  The only thing separating them from organic production is they use synthetic fertilizers in their greenhouse production.

YYC Growers & Distributors

In 2015 we joined forces with an awesome group of urban farmers, YYC Growers.  YYC Growers is now a co-operative of 15 urban and rural farmers with one goal main vision, to supply Calgarians with healthy local food. Similar to us, YYC Growers offers a Vegetable delivery program within Calgary composed of vegetables grown by the co-operatives farms.  In addition YYC Growers carries our veggies at many year round and summer Farmers Markets within the city.

Organic Box

We started working with Chrystel & Avni at the Farm Box in Canmore in 2015. They are great supporters of local food producers and are supplying great Organic Food to families in the Bow Valley.  The Farm Box has since partnered with the Organic Box based out of Edmonton which continues to sources vegetables, meats, breads and loads of other great Alberta and BC produced goods we use in our every day cooking.  They arrange these good in a  weekly home delivery food box program delivering to Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary, Canmore & Banff.  If you live in the Bow Valley, visit their booth at the Canmore Farmers Market.
