Farmers market.

Perhaps best know for the wide variety of products and produce during the summer season. Also plenty of restaurants and shopping near by on Whyte Ave.

The price of storefront rent has driven away the unique small businesses, and it is now being populated with chain stores that you can find at any mall any place in North America. What is there to draw people to the area if there is nothing interesting about it. Clean up the area, lower the rents so that small businesses... More

One of the Oldest areas in Edmonton it was once its own town. I includes Whyte avenue a shopping street with many Boutique type shops and restaurants. Take the Ghost tour, visit the farmers market, train museum or just relax on one of the patios and people watch. at night there's a lively bar and nightclub scene.

Any time of year, any day of the week or and time of day or night, there is always something unique and fun to do, or see! This area is a sea rich in culture and hosts a good vibe. I could spend all day checking out each individual specialty shop. If you are craving something...they probably have a restaurant,... More

The IN place to stroll, shop, people-watch and eat in the funky historical area of Edmonton. There are great cafes, sidewalk stands and casual fine dining all along Whyte Avenue. Great atmosphere both day and night!

An amazing dining experience.A little more expensive than what you might find on Whyte Ave but more than worth the trip to the 109 st/70 ave area.A family run Lebanese place,with insanely tasty dishes.Wine selection is lengthy,a great quiet place for a romantic dinner,and best of all-no TV's blasting the hockey game.

Aside from the historical buildings, it has small shops that have one of a kind merchandise, like When Pigs Fly. Multiple pubs, bars, clubs and street cafes. At night it comes alive with party goers. It's safe as the neighborhood watch and the Beat Cops frequent area. There are many festivals that take place here: Fringe, Ice sculptures etc. There... More

lots of unique shops on Whyte Ave as well as restaurants. Parking is a bit tight as well as expensive in the meters! Pay attention to times you can park, I recieved a 75.00 parking ticket! so use transit if you can!
