Vendor Profile Sparrow’s Nest Organics

*** Vendor Profile***

Sparrow’s Nest Organics is a great produce vendor at the 124st Grand Market that has been growing certified organic produce since 2003. Every Thursday Graham arrives with his truck loaded full of delicious produce from the farm to sell to market goers and some is kept off to the side for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) pick ups. You can expect to find market staples like carrots, potatoes, lettuce, as well as a varied selection that changes throughout the season, like raspberries during the hot mid-summer and squashes into the fall.

In order to ensure they maintain the highest quality of organic produce that is locally grown, Sparrow’s Nest Organics are methodical with their cropping methods and use a combination of compost, green manures, and other processes to sustain healthy soil.

“The goals of Sparrow’s Nest Organics are to:

  • Provide Edmonton consumers with wholesome, fresh, certified organic food
  • Provide Edmonton consumers with a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm
  • Provide land to create an Intentional Community
  • Maintain nature’s diversity
  • Improve ecology of local land and water

Why should YOU support Sparrow’s Nest? Because we offer Edmonton the highest quality, locally grown certified organic produce. Explore our web site and learn more about CSA, organic farming, and intentional community.”- Sparrow’s Nest Organics
