Taking place every Thursday and Saturday from 10:00 am – 1:30 pm in the Leduc Recreation Centre parking lot, the Leduc Farmer’s Market is dedicated to not only providing high-quality locally produced goods, but showcases the strong sense of community the Leduc Region is known for. Featuring a diverse selection of vendors selling everything from fresh produce and meat to candles and jewelry, the list of vendors changes each week to keep the farmer’s market new and exciting all summer long.
