From the coulees of the badlands to the combines of the wheatlands, discover Alberta’s diverse terroir, and be captivated by the distinct tastes of this majestic province. Food Artisans of Alberta is a robust travel companion for local food lovers and visitors alike.

Come to know the stories, inspiration, and friendly faces of the people who craft great food as they cultivate the community of food artisans.

With regional maps that highlight the locations of 200 food artisans, set out on an adventure through fertile fields and bountiful edible crops.
