124 Street Grand Market – Sense of Community

124 Street Grand Market – Sense of Community

124 Street Grand Market is now in it’s third year. Located on 124 Street and 108 avenue, it has a different feel from any other Farmer’s Market that I have attended in the past.

Kirsta Franke, the Market Director, has brought together a unique atmosphere and a sense of community. There is always a DJ or live music, food vendors, craft vendors and food trucks. The market runs rain or shine from 4pm to 8pm every Thursday until October 9th.

I like to pop by the market for a lot of different things and hope to make it a habit this year.  124 Street is full of restaurants and great shops.  The business association already has a sense of community and Kirsta has managed to carry on this spirit to to the market.  I always recognize a face or two every time I attend.

For my food truck followers, you always have Cookie Love which brings their handcrafted cookie ice-cream sandwiches to the market.  They will usually greet you at the entrance of the market.  Don’t wait to get your dessert first, there is only so many cookies to go around and you might miss out if you don’t pick one up right away. (I have done this a couple of times.)

There are always a handful of food trucks to choose from.  At the Grand Opening they had Drift, Little Village, Orbit, Sailin’ On and The Fruit Truck.
