Connect with your community, and support local at the HSCA Farmers' Market 'Holiday Market Series'.
Our Farmers' Market family is happy to host an extended version of our weekly market to bring you the best in holiday cheer this season; for the first three Wednesdays in December, from 3-7pm, find us inside at the Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Association. In addition to your favourite weekly vendors, we will be hosting local artists and crafters to make your holiday shopping unique and convenient. There will also be live music, a community craft, cookie decorating and Storytime for kids, a photobooth, recipe exchange and more! This event is open to everyone and is accessible to all abilities.
Bring the kids down each week at 4:30pm for stories by the fire with Calgary Reads, and stick around to decorate a cookie. Local talent will be performing on The Sweet Beet Stage throughout the series, with a special holiday performance happening December 20th at 5pm. Tell us why you love your community with our communal garland craft, and take a picture at our photo booth for a chance to win 20$ in HSCA Farmers' Market Gift Certificates. Or get inspired with our recipe exchange, where you can discover how your community cooks, and share your own favourite holiday recipes.
Our vendors will have everything you need to make sure your holiday feast is fresh and delicious – from soups to stuffing, turkey to treats and beyond. Or help someone in need have their own feast, and donate to our Fresh Food Drive during the first two weeks of our Holiday Market Series (December 6th and 13th). We will be collecting fresh food products, or Farmers' Market Gift Certificates to be distributed through our ‘Fresh Food Basket’ Program - a weekly drop-in food access program for anyone having difficulty accessing the food that they need for a healthy life.
Whether you're searching for an exceptional gift, seeking out a unique ingredient for that new recipe, or just looking to warm up and have some holiday fun, you will find it at the Hillhurst Sunnyside Farmers' Market 'Holiday Market Series'!
