Calgary Alderman Campaigns for Urban Market


CALGARY — Word is that city alderman Druh Farrell is pushing for an urban Farmers’ Market to open just west of 14th Street in Calgary, amongst the car dealerships in the area.

The plan is to open the market daily, unlike the Calgary Farmers’ Market already in existence. And, although many residents love the idea, others are worried about things like parking.
