Farmers Market Comes to Banff!


Hooray, history has been made! At a much anticipated council meeting earlier this week, council members unanimously voted in favor for a farmers market to be held in Banff throughout this summer. It’s something that has been on the agenda for many local residents for years and the decision has been met with fantastic response.

With recent concerns about the tourism industry and not to mention gas prices, the farmers market is yet another reason to come and visit the area and is sure to bring a vibrancy and buzz about town. It’s a free event that is perfect for families wanting to enjoy some ‘down time’ when they come to the area.

The market will feature a variety of products and organizers are keen to ensure that there is a varied selection of stalls. Councilors want to keep the location central for shoppers as its going to be a great opportunity for visitors to stroll around the market in the summer sun.

Located at the end of Banff high street in the Central Park parking lot, it is going to be ideal for downtown shopping with its central location. The only concern is the loss of 38 parking spaces during the peak summer season. Guests staying at the Douglas Fir Resort needn’t worry as all Douglas Fir Resort guests receive free and unlimited access to the downtown shuttle bus, so you can leave your car at the hotel and enjoy a hassle free trip to the market!

The farmers market is scheduled to be held every Wednesday between June 29th and August 31st. Just make sure you buy us something nice!
