Fresh Sheet: August 16, 2017

This week's Fresh Sheet is up!  

Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center parking lot from 4-7:30 pm.

We are halfway through August, and we are seeing a slow transition of the fruit & veggies available at the market.  For example, garden peas and raspberry season is over, while cauliflower, corn, pickling cucumbers, and melons have been making their appearances. Soon we will be seeing a wonderful array of squash available!

It pays to eat what is in season locally.  Food always tastes best when it’s picked at its peak and sold within days. Often, food traveling long and far is picked prematurely and then refrigerated to prevent spoiling.  Come to the SWEFM every Wednesday until Oct. 4th to load up on what's in ripe & season in our wonderful province (and in BC, for your fruit needs).

Join us here on the Fresh Sheet every Tuesday to see what's fresh and happening at your favourite farmers' market! Remember, please leave Fido at home- no dogs are allowed where food is being served!

This week in the Community Tent we will have the Boys and Girls Clubs and Big Brothers/Big Sisters back again.  This is a community-supported organization committed to the healthy development of children, youth and their families by providing safe places, positive relationships, services and opportunities to develop personal strengths and interpersonal skills that enhance their long-term success in life.

The Importance of Buying Local

20638169_1477505805649385_6892733729463534191_n.jpg

Buy Local!

Did you know that the SWEFM is part of the Alberta Farmers' Market Association?  By being a member of the AFMA, we are committed to the "80/20 Rule".  That means that a minimum of 80 per cent of the vendors at our market  must be Albertans who meet the “make it, bake it, grow it” criteria.  The remaining 20 per cent (or less) are vendors selling non-Albertan or handmade/homegrown products that complement the market mix.  In the 2016 season, the SWEFM vendor count was 92% Albertan (and we also jumped from an average of 37 vendors per market in 2015 to 51 per market in 2016!). 

We define "local" as Albertan made (and ideally, the vendors are selling direct, although we do have a couple of redistributors for niche items).  Generally, the only vendors that get into the "Other" category are BC fruit & seafood sellers.  We believe that there are many reasons to support local:  it supports the future of local farming, it promotes cultural diversity (we have cuisine from 12+ nations represented at the market weekly), it strengthens community connections, and it empowers consumers by giving them a chance to engage with producers/growers directly. 

Buying locally also creates a better sense of family & community.  When we buy local foods, we are encouraged and inspired by our food. We come home from the market with the ingredients we bought and hit the kitchen, whipping up favourite family recipes and applying our creative juices. And then, we get to savour the bounty with loved ones, enjoying the experience slowly, talking about the effort and the end result. 

There are also so many economical reasons to buy local.  To quote Time Magazine:

Money is like blood. It needs to keep moving around to keep the economy going.  When money is spent elsewhere—at big supermarkets, non-locally owned utilities and other services such as on-line retailers- that money flows out, like a wound. By shopping at the corner store or farmers' markets, instead of the big box store, consumers keep their communities from becoming what the NEF (New Economics Foundation) calls "ghost towns" (areas devoid of neighborhood shops and services) or "clone towns", where Main Street now looks like every other Main Street with the same fast-food and retail chains.  

Research out of Brock University suggests $3 billion would be added to the local economy if 5 million Ontarians spent $10 of their grocery budget on local foods each week.  And, "Buy Local" is a hopeful message in a recession because it's not about how much money you've got, but how much you can keep circulating without letting it leak out

With these points in mind, please consider spending some of your hard-earned dollars at local stores, trade fairs, and of course, farmers' markets!

Cherries!

I'd like to spotlight one of my favourite items that we have at the market: cherries!  The good news is that they are still around.. but only for another month or so, so load up and enjoy while you can.  We know that many of our market patrons value buying local (at the SWEFM, that largely means keeping at least 80% of our goods made, baked, grown or raised in Alberta).  In this context, we'd encourage you to come to the market, or to visit other markets and fruit stands, to purchase BC cherries, in support of the Canadian economy. 

Did you know that British Columbia grows 95% of Canada's cherries?  It is no secret that Canadian Cherries are the finest in the world. Grown in the interior of British Columbia, these Cherries boast some of the highest Brix (sugar) content on the planet. The BC climate is perfect for growing these juicy little gems!

The cherry fruit is part of the Rosaceae (rose)  family, which also includes almonds, peaches, apricots, and plums.  They are considered one of the low-calorie fruits, and have powerful anti-oxidant properties.  These little beauties pack a lot of punch when it comes to flavor.  Be sure to buy cherries while you still can; their season is quite short .

Visit the following vendors at the SWEFM to get the freshest cherries in Edmonton

  • Steve & Dan's Fresh BC Fruit
  • Red Apple
  • AIG Produce Osoyoos
  • Organic Box

Many of these vendors sell both regular and Rainier cherries; be sure to give both a try! "Rainiers" are considered a premium type of cherry. They are sweet with a thin skin and thick creamy-yellow flesh.

Random Cherry Facts:

Canada holds the record for baking the biggest cherry pie in the world. A pie weighing 39,683 pounds was baked in Oliver, British Columbia

Traditional folk healers often advocate sour cherries to treat gout. 

 It is believed the Romans discovered this fruit in Asia Minor around 70 BC.

About 1/3 of a Rainier cherry orchard's crop is eaten by birds

Artists of the SWEFM!

Artists of the Southwest Edmonton Farmers' Market:  Part 1
By: Christie Anderson

I would like to give kudos to the artists of our market.   This group makes up less than 10% of our total market mix, and at a market that is known as a "foodies" market, I feel like they often don't get the attention they deserve.  Today I'm giving a shout out to our artists, and I'd like to share a bit about a few of them (stay tuned for part 2, when I will be covering more of our awesome non-food vendors).

Jocelyne April of April Designs Studios has the most eye-catching sculptures that I have ever seen in a market!  She uses a technique called Paverpol, which is a non-toxic, environmental friendly fabric hardener used to make both indoor and outdoor sculptures, abstract objects, wall art, vases, decorative items, animals, jewelry, masks ... the list is endless. Her work is wonderful and I can truly say that these pieces are so unique, and will probably get people curious when they see one of these in your home or yard.  Catch Jocelyn at the market on July 12, August 23, and September 13!

Chewelry & Babe and From the Mouth of Babes both sell beautiful baby items.  Chewelry has homemade silicone teething bracelets and necklaces, pacifier clips, and rattles.  From the Mouth of Babes has booties, shoes, hats and clothing.  If you are expecting, have a little one, or need a gift, be sure to check these vendors out!

Ethereal Therapy is new to the market in 2017.   They began to develop and produce handmade vegetable oil soaps and shampoos in 2000, and soon began encountering customers with problematic skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. They listened to what their customers wanted and needed, and developed their own line of therapy products.  Stop by their stall at the market and have a chat.  Not only are their products worth checking out, but they are uber friendly and interesting!

Lastly, be sure to pop by Dazzling Designs' stall and have a chat with Archana, who makes all of these beautiful creations, largely from fabrics she imports from her family's community in India.   Her collections features handmade apparel and scarves and hand-painted jewelry.  Her next market dates are July 19th Aug. 2nd, and Sept. 13th.

Fresh Sheet: June 14, 2017

This week's Fresh Sheet is up!  

Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center parking lot from 4-7:30 pm.

Last week the market was THE place to be.  With deep blue skies and a high of +29, it truly felt like the first day of summer!  Enjoying over 2000 attendees and 300+ children aged 4-12 taking part in our Sprouts (children's) program, the market was bustling and full of joy. 

Over the next few weeks, we will see the last of the bedding plants as the season changes, and the BC fruit orchards and more local vegetable producers will return to the market in full force.  It's not too late to plant eggplant, tomatoes, or peppers, so be sure to pick up a few of these beauties if you haven't already... time is ticking!
Lastly, don't forget to check out our line up of wonderful Artisans.  While they represent a small percentage of the market, they bring so much value in the form of creativity and uniqueness.  

Join us here on the Fresh Sheet every Tuesday to see what's fresh and happening at your favourite farmers' market! Remember, please leave Fido at home- no dogs are allowed where food is being served!

Tell me about Sprouts!

Many of our market patrons know about the Sprouts program.  However, with so many of the communities of South West Edmonton growing so quickly, we figured there could be a lot of you not familiar with this program.  Here is a look at our flagship family program.   

What is Sprouts?

Sprouts is a children’s nutrition program run by volunteers of the Southwest Edmonton Farmers’ Market (SWEFM). What you might not know is that SWEFM, itself, is a community project run under the umbrella of TRAC, the Terwillegar Riverbend Advisory Council. Sprouts began in 2013 and has been run entirely by volunteers and funded 100% through sponsorship donations. In its short 4 years, it has gained tremendous momentum, popularity and community buy-in. It began as a program open to 100 children, and grew in its first year to serve 400 children as the community began to see its value and made financial contributions to ensure its success. Sprouts is now open and free to all children between the ages of 4 and 12, thanks to the generous financial donations of community minded businesses, some of its area community leagues, SWAC (South West Area Council) lottery funds, and even some of its participants!

A Community-Led Initiative:

Sprouts is an excellent example of a community-led initiative that started with the spark of an idea and the vision of one volunteer in Terwillegar. A former teacher, she shared her idea with others, roping in neighbors and friends, fellow farmers’ market steering committee members and community volunteers. Through a wonderful collaborative effort, they developed the program with creativity, ingenuity, hard work and vision.

How Does Sprouts Work? A children’s nutrition program, Sprouts is designed to empower kids to make their own healthy eating decisions, to educate them about where their food comes from, and to encourage them to lead a healthy lifestyle. It has a few key elements:

1) Each week that children came to market, they check in at the Sprouts tent and pick up a wooden token that is worth $2. There are strict rules about the token use as it can only be used on fruit, vegetables or food plants (if children want to grow their own food).

2) It is the children who decide what they will purchase with their token, and we encourage them to try new fruits and veggies, and to experiment with their purchases and buy weird and wonderful veggies like candy cane beets, purple cauliflower or alien-space ship looking kohlrabi as a way of exploring the diverse world of the farmers’ market.

3) Some of the farmers that participate in the program go out of their way to create special bags, baskets and cups that contain healthy fruits & veggies that are worth more than the $2 value, and in this way volunteer their own time, creativity and financial contribution to the program.

4) The children enter into a dialogue with our volunteers about their healthy eating and the nutritional decisions they are making in their lives. They enter into dialogues with the farmers about where their food comes from and how it is grown.

5) Next, Sprouts families receive child-friendly recipes, designed to teach basic cooking skills and get children more involved in meal prep and planning at home. Each recipe is very child-friendly and fun and designed by U of A nutrition student volunteers and the Sprouts Recipe Coordinator (Sheri Hendsbee).
a. Each week has a different recipe, featuring fruits and veggies that are in season and available at the market.
b. Each recipe has a nutrition tip, carefully crafted to make accessing nutrition science easy and fun.
c. The entire recipe is kid friendly, designed in bright colours with simple instructions meant to encourage families to cook together, to eat together, and to connect over home cooked meals.
d. There is a “Sprouting Chef’s Tip” for children who are new to cooking in the kitchen that explains or simplifies a technique in the recipe.
e. There is a “Creative Cooks” tip that encourages those children who are more experienced in the kitchen to step up the complexity of a recipe or experiment with substitutions.

6) Opening Day, the first 500 children receive a bright orange Sprouts bag that they return to market with each week. The kids love their pint-sized bags!
