Today we’re rounding up a list of cheap eats you can score at the Calgary Farmers’ Market for around $10.
The Main Dish

Choose from an assortment of grains, proteins, and veggies, as well as mains and sides. If you want to stay there, they have wraps and smoothies at their Calgary Farmers’ Market location.
