If you’re looking for a night off from the kitchen or perhaps your home is sweltering in this summer heat, there will be food trucks on-site ready to serve you tasty treats. The fabulous line-up this year features:
- Soul Kitchen
- Happy Fish
- Waffles & Chix

- Damit Amit
After hearing all that, we’re sure you’re ready to head down to the market already, so here are a few frequently asked questions answered before you go:
- Can I bring my dog?
- Unfortunately, no. Due to being an open food market, there is a strict no pet policy.
- Are there ATMs?
- Of course – no cash, no problem. The machine is located in the far southwest corner.
- How do I know if they’re open?
- From June 5 – October 9, the Airdrie Farmers’ Market will be open rain or shine every Wednesday. There are many moving pieces to running this event and it isn’t safe or efficient to have people wandering the grounds before 3:30pm.
- How can I be a vendor?
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org a product list, name of your business and whether you want to be a full- or part-time vendor. The cost of a stall is $35/day and there is no minimum number of days required. Maximum one business per stall.
With all that said, you should be ready to head on down to the Airdrie Farmer’s Market and take advantage of everything it has to offer. Grab some fresh produce for the week, a snack from the food truck and we’ll see you back here the following week for a top up.
