Fresh Sheet: September 27th, 2017

This week's Fresh Sheet is up!  

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

This week we are hosting our final visit of the Edmonton Food Bank's "Plant a Row, Grow a Row" program, which will be set up in the Community Tent.  They will be accepting donations of  non-perishable goods & fresh produce from the vendors, as well as any extra produce you have left from your garden.  Also, we are having a Thanksgiving Basket giveaway, with all proceeds going to the Edmonton Food Bank.  This awesome basket includes a Sunworks Farm turkey, bread, honey, preserves, vegetables, and so much more.  Get your entry slips at the Info Tent!

A reminder to all of our Sprouts: please bring any extra tokens you have been saving at home to the last markets so we can collect them for more kids to use next season!  This is also the time to remind you that this is the second last market of the year; Oct. 4th is our final market day.

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 Edmonton Food Bank "Plant a Row, Grow a Row" program.  Through the Plant a Row, Grow a Row project, a portion of your vegetables you grow in your garden can be conveniently donated to Edmonton’s Food Bank. How often is it that you can enjoy a favorite hobby and help others in your community at the same time? This project is a fun way to do both. It was initially started in Winnipeg in 1986 and came to Edmonton in 1998. Edmonton’s Food Bank sponsors this program in Edmonton and area, which invites local gardeners to grow an extra row of vegetables or earmark extra vegetables for donation to Edmonton’s Food Bank.

This week in the Community Tent we will have the Edmonton Food Bank "Plant a Row, Grow a Row" program.  Through the Plant a Row, Grow a Row project, a portion of your vegetables you grow in your garden can be conveniently donated to Edmonton’s Food Bank. How often is it that you can enjoy a favorite hobby and help others in your community at the same time? This project is a fun way to do both. It was initially started in Winnipeg in 1986 and came to Edmonton in 1998. Edmonton’s Food Bank sponsors this program in Edmonton and area, which invites local gardeners to grow an extra row of vegetables or earmark extra vegetables for donation to Edmonton’s Food Bank.  We will also be hosting the Terry Fox Foundation.  For over 30 years The Terry Fox Foundation has worked to achieve Terry’s vision – a world without cancer.  The Foundation will be providing info on the Terry Fox Run which is happening in September. 

This week in the Community Tent we will have the Edmonton Food Bank "Plant a Row, Grow a Row" program.  Through the Plant a Row, Grow a Row project, a portion of your vegetables you grow in your garden can be conveniently donated to Edmonton’s Food Bank.

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!

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
