Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book celebrates 100 years of the Edmonton City Market. It explains how the market managed to survive and thrive through the city's growth from a frontier outpost to a high-rise metropolis. Also discusses the relationships between agricultural values and urban development and the role that farmers' markets play in sustaining the cottage-agricultural and artisan sectors of local economy. The book is richly illustrated with original drawings, archival photographs, and maps. Integrates many first-hand accounts and anecdotes from vendors and customers of the City Market with its historical and contemporary place in the City of Edmonton.
