The approval allows us to open up our market to even more vendors whom we would've turned away due to certain restrictions on food preparation!

Roger's Farms (Full Season)
Not only are we at Roger's Farms growing some of our own veggies in AB this year, we are now a certified organic grower! We have acquired a 2.5 acre certified organic garden by Leslieville, west of Sylvan Lake. We are growing our own organic carrots, beets, potatoes, garlic, onions and sweat peas for sale at the farmers markets that we service in Southern Alberta.
This has been in response to farmers markets preferring to have AB growers rather than commercial (resellers & BC/Intl produce) and also customers frequently asking if we grow the produce that we sell if it is organic. It makes it easier for market managers to meet the 80/20 regulation and improves the quality of produce, our image and the experience the customer has at the farmers' market.
Hillview Colony - Joshua and Frank Hofer (Full Season!)
We'd like to extend a warm welcome to Hillview Colony for the entire season of the SFCRA 2011 Farmer's Market!
