Summer’s the perfect time to go outside and visit the local farmers’ markets Edmonton has to offer. The sun is shining, the produce is fresh, and there’s always something going on in the community. While some people like to get to the farmers’ market by walking or biking, others may want to make the trip by driving if they’re too far from the city.
While some people may opt for taking the SUV out to the farmers’ market, we think the MINI Cooper makes for the perfect vehicle to drive there. Take a look and see why we at MINI Edmonton think its the best vehicle to take to the farmers’ market.
If you’re visiting one of the local farmers’ markets that are only open on the weekend, parking is going to be hectic. Parking spots will be filled, traffic will be high, and knowing the dominant Albertan culture, trucks will be everywhere gobbling up space. One of the advantages of taking your MINI Cooper out to the farmers’ market is for its small, compact size. The MINI Cooper’s build is perfect for fitting in smaller parking lot spaces or along street parking.
Of course, you’re going to need somewhere to neatly stow away all of your produce. Luckily, the MINI’s hatch-style back door lets you load everything in and out with ease. If you decide to opt for one of the larger-style MINI models, such as the Clubman or the Countryman, you can have a cargo volume of up to 1,390-litres with the rear seats folded down! You even have the choice of adding the optional Automatic Power Tailgate to make loading groceries even easier by just kicking the rear bumper to open it.
The last reason you should take a MINI Cooper out to the farmers market is probably the most evident reason—it just looks so darn cool to drive. Imagine pulling up to the farmers market in the summertime, where everything’s bright, colourful, and full of sunshine—the MINI Cooper matches the atmosphere almost perfectly. Regardless of when or where you’re driving, the MINI Cooper remains one of the most stylish vehicles to drive around.
These were only a few reasons why the MINI Cooper makes for the perfect vehicle to drive around the farmers market. From all of us at MINI Edmonton, happy vegetable picking! Make sure to ask us questions if you’re interested in learning more, or test driving, a MINI Cooper today.
