If you have been following the adventures of Chain Mail Chicken you’ll know that Chain Mail’s cousins stepped up to the plate after his kidnapping to travel the world in his place. Our first report from the field is from Cluckin’ Chuck who visited the Edmonton’s Farmer’s Market with photographer Ian McKenzie. Cluckin’ Chucks tells us about his adventures below:
A visit to Edmonton’s City Market by Cluckin’ ChuckWhile in Edmonton, I had a chance to check out the downtown City Market. I wasn’t too sure about going until I saw the market’s logo. I knew it was the place to be.
It was a cloudy, blustery day, but there were loads of people everywhere. You would think most of them had never seen a rubber chicken at a market. Every time I checked out one of the stalls, people would stop what they were doing to watch.
None of these stalls were selling any of my relatives. If fact, as near as I could tell, there was no chicken for sale in the entire market; a big plus in my books. However, I did come across a stall with cartons of future nieces and nephews from the organic side of the family.
As well. there were loads of craft vendors selling everything from jewelry to clothing. Nothing I tried on fit very well. I did check out a number of colourful wallets at one stall, but in the end, couldn’t find just the right one for my personality.
I met a lot of people. Apart from those gawking at me, there were friendly folk who said hello. Christine from Shooting Star Ranch seemed to know all about the family and wanted a photo with me.
There were musicians performing around the market, and I stopped for a bit and listened to Kyler Schogen playing the blues.
It was a satisfying, but tiring morning. I was glad to find a nice little coffee shop to rest and enjoy an Americano and Danish.
