The Story of Rene – Your Market Manager

Market Manager, Rene Geber, is a born and raised Banffite - a rare breed! Rene is very passionate about his home town and considers himself fortunate to be able to embrace the views of the surrounding Canadian Rocky Mountains. An avid outdoorsman and adventurist, Rene is also passionate about good food and mother nature. In 2011, he decided that the best way of showing his love back to the environment that raised him, was to give the community a place to gather and to provide access to locally grown fresh food, baked goods and genuine locally made arts-and-crafts. The Banff Farmer’s Market was born. This year The Farmer’s Market will be held on the 2nd Block on Bear Street, providing a very central location amidst the hustle and bustle of downtown Banff.
