Alberta Agriculture has created a free app for Apple and Android that provides up-to-date information about locations, times, and dates of farmers’ markets in the province.
Farmers’ markets are the No. 1 agri-tourism attraction in Alberta, providing a great shopping experience where consumers can “savour time” rather than “save time.”
The app, which cost about $40,000 to develop, lists more than 120 approved farmers’ markets in the province. In an approved farmers’ market, 80 per cent of the vendors must meet the “make it, bake it, grow it” criteria.
The app can be downloaded at open.alberta.ca.
