Welcome to Alberta Local Food Week!

Welcome to Alberta Local Food Week!

09 Aug 2020

Local Food Week is a celebration of Alberta local food and local food producers.


During this week, we want Albertans to discover new Alberta food products and meet the many passionate and talented farmers, growers and food makers that call our province home.


Local Food Week runs Sunday, August 9th to Sunday, August 16th inclusive.


During the week, there are a number of key events and activities planned, in every part of our province, to help you celebrate Alberta local food and food producers:


  • On August 15 and 16th, many of Alberta’s working farms will be hosting an “open house” through Open Farm Days, inviting you to see first hand how these farms operate.


  • The Alberta Farmers' Market Association is having a contest to celebrate Local Food Week.  Click here for all the details.   Check this list to see what individual markets are doing and when.


  • Alberta on the Plate is a new culinary festival celebrating local food and drink at many restaurants around Alberta. Learn more and find out what restaurants are participating.


This is just a taste of what’s happening!


Remember: As you dive into Alberta local food, share your favourite bites and food makers with your friends and followers on social media – use the hashtag #ablocalfood.
