About Our Market
The Cochrane Farmers’ Market is proud to be an Alberta Approved Farmers’ Market. The Cochrane Environmental Action Committee sponsors and operates the Cochrane Farmers’ Market at the Cochrane Ranche Historic Site. The market is run by CEAC volunteers and all proceeds from the market go to support CEAC in its efforts to make Cochrane a more environmentally aware and active community.
The outdoor market runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each Saturday, rain or shine, from the beginning of June until the end of September.
The Historic Cochrane Ranche Site is located north of Highway 1A just west of downtown. The market takes place in the park west of the Ranche parking lot, a site that is lined with mature poplar trees making it the perfect place on a sunny market morning. The Town of Cochrane and the Ranche are popular destinations on Saturday mornings so we enjoy great attendance!
In 2008 the Cochrane Farmers’ Market celebrated 10 years and it marked a renewed interest in our market. We have continued to grow and each year is better than the last! We have loyal customers that visit our vendors each and every week. We’re looking forward to another year of growth in 2016, our 18th year of operation.
