Old Strathcona Farmers' Market

10310 83 Ave NW, Edmonton, Alberta
http://osfm.ca/

The Market began in 1983 in the parking lot on the corner of 83rd Ave and 103rd Street (now the location of our free customer parking), outdoors with only 10-15 vendors selling a small variety of garden products, baking and crafts. In 1986 we moved inside to the "Old Bus Barns" on Saturdays. The underlying philosophy of the market which we still use today was introduced, "We Make it! We Bake it! We Grow it! We Sell it!".

    Have always appreciated the busy and healthy environment. Memorable buskers, especially that banjo guy who is extremely fast.

  • Come here for my produce!

    This is a great place for picking up produce for the week! I live just a few blocks away and I wish it was open more often!

  • Edmonton's "Small City' Culture
    guestBook Guestbook/ dorotea/ May 18, 2017

    The Farmers' Market has long since been a favourite memory of mine: the smell of sugary kettle corn, the decadent scent of fresh vegetables, and the warm hustle and bustle of locals haggling and bartering are simply priceless. Spending an afternoon here reveals a certain culture to Edmonton that is usually hidden under 3 feet of snow and below thirty temperatures.

  • Old Scona Academic: More Than a School
    guestBook Guestbook/ jyoun432/ Feb 27, 2015 Old Scona Academic: More Than a School

    The transition from junior high to high school is scary for everyone. You begin to question your whole identity. Who are you? What are you going to be now? For me, not only was I surrounded by new people and a new environment but, since Old Scona is an academic school, I was surrounded by people who would essentially view me as simple competition. Yet how would I compete with these students? How could I fit in with their intellectual prowess? On top of that, trivial things such as what clothes you wore, what phone you had and what makeup you used suddenly mattered much more. Given all this, it's not a surprise that it took me a while to adapt. However, in my final year of high school, I realize that the amount of worrying I did was pointless. These people, my friends, at this school have taught me more than just academics. They've taught me how to grow as an individual. Since successfully achieving at academics is a norm at Old Scona, failure leaves a stronger impact here than anywhere else. Yet these people here view failure as a means of achieving success. Without failure, how do you learn to appreciate your accomplishments? With all the low points I've encountered during my high school experience so far, the people here have been nothing but always encouraging and inspiring. Not just the friends I've made but also the teachers have been motivating. Everyone at Old Scona genuinely wants you to achieve. Those moments when you actually do succeed, you're not only making yourself proud but everyone else as well. Because of this school, I can say for my Canadian identity that I am more than a student. I am a leader yet a follower. I am a friend and an encourager. I have learned true friendship, appreciation and accomplishment. I am an Old Scona student.
