YYC Growers is an alliance of urban and rural farmers from in and around the Calgary area. The collective began in 2013 as a way of providing Calgary's urban farmers with a way to pool efforts and resources.
We've proudly carried YYC Growers at the store for a few years now, and they've never failed to provide us with a variety of high quality produce. Most of their farmers use organic seeds, and all their veggies are spray-free and naturally grown.
There are nearly 20 full and part-time farmers that make up the YYC Growers collective. Beyond supplying Sunnyside Natural Market, they also provide many restaurants throughout the city, as well as offer their own CSA.
