A History of the Edmonton City Market 1900-2000

Kathryn Chase Merrett celebrates 100 years of the Edmonton City Market in this groundbreaking local history. Richly textured with archival photographs, drawings, maps, and anecdotes by vendors and customers of the city market, this book reveals how the market managed to thrive in the heart of a city that grew from a frontier outpost to a high-rise metropolis. In this original study, Merrett sheds light on the turbulent relationship between a city's cultural and agricultural values and the civic aspirations of the city's officials. A History of the Edmonton City Market brings a comprehensive study of a long-lived and much-loved institution to life by seamlessly integrating details of the city market with wider contexts of urban, economic, and cultural studies.
