City Market Cozies Up for the Winter Inside City Hall
October 12, 2011
Starting October 15, vendors from the popular City Market Downtown will be selling their wares inside City Hall. The City Market Downtown at City Hall will be open every Saturday from 10am to 3pm until May 2012, when it will return to its outdoor home on 104 Street.
“Hosting the market at City Hall enables it to operate year round, keeping our community connected with local food producers and artisans,” said Jill Wright, City Hall Client Services Manager. “This is in line with the City’s commitment to a sustainable food and urban agricultural system in Edmonton.”
This is the third time the City Market has called City Hall home. Earlier this year, City Hall hosted the market from March to May following a successful pilot in November and December, 2010.
“City Hall is convenient and accessible. We are thrilled to be coming back,” said Dan Young, spokesperson for the City Market. “It’s your same, beloved City Market experience but under the sunny, warm glow of the pyramids of City Hall.”
The City Market Downtown at City Hall will feature an extraordinary selection of locally-produced merchandise including original artwork, handcrafted jewellery, one-of-a-kind fashions and accessories, delectable baking and homemade honey, jams and dips. Many of the buskers and entertainment that kept things lively on 104 Street will also be on hand.
