Being a hop, skip and a jump away from ‘The Greenhouse Capital of the Prairies’ has some fantastic perks, like always having access to quality produce at an affordable price. Along with this list of local greenhouses, you can find many of their products at our local Walmart, Safeway, Co-op and Sobey’s.

Ruben’s Veggies

Self serve huts offering a variety of eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, carrots, radishes, lettuce, garlic, eggplant, beans, peas and goat milk soaps can be found at multiple locations across the city. Ruben’s has recently expanded across Southern Alberta to Lethbridge, Calgary and Okotoks. Their unstaffed locations mean less cost is passed on to their customers, making it possible to keep prices low. You can find them locally from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 2360 Division Ave N, 3158 Dunmore Rd SE, or in Redcliff at 703 Broadway Ave W.

Westland Fresh Produce

Westland’s always rotating selection of products can be purchased right at their greenhouse, located at 22 - 6 Street NW, Redcliff from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Keep an eye on their social media to find out what’s newly stocked, since they often switch it up with different varieties of kale, lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, herbs, peppers and more!

BioTech Greenhouse Ltd.

Located at 202 - 9th Street NW, Redcliff and open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. BioTech has much to offer. Shoppers are greeted by a variety of tomatoes, along with lettuce, cucumbers, bell peppers, hot peppers, and more. If you like to can, their pricing is well worth the trip - for a 15lbs box of canning tomatoes, it is $6.50!

Big Marble Farms

Recently changing their name from RedHat Growers, Big Marble Farms is hands down the largest grower in the Cypress County area, with 1.5 million square feet of greenhouses. They are also the only grower on this list that runs year round, supplying much of Canada with tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplants and lettuce. Their greenhouse is not open to the public, however, they supply Sobey’s and Safeway across Canada.

If you head to Redcliff and can’t find the specific greenhouse you are looking for, not to fret! Just keep an eye out, you will most likely drive past many more open to peruse.
