Yet another weekend and yet another market to explore! Don and I rode to the City Market in downtown Edmonton to see what the vendors had to offer. A few years ago Don owned a loft on the next street over and was a volunteer during the market's inception. Now it's up and off the ground and packed with people and also lots of cute dogs! The shopping and simultaneous dog walking is a big advantage to that wonderful market being outdoors.
It's also on 104 street, which is the location of several new mixed use condo buildings. Lots of excellent independent shops for home stuffs, wine, bridal; eateries like the Blue Plate Diner and Tzin, the funky wine bar; and also the new Sobeys which was modeled after Capers in Vancouver. I think it's the most beautiful little grocery in town.
