Fresh Sheet: June 13, 2018

This week's Fresh Sheet is up and we are Bursting with the best food in edmonton!

Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center

in Parking Lot E from 4 to 7:30pm

Last week the market was THE place to be.  With deep blue skies and sun, it truly felt like the first summer market!  Enjoying over 2000 attendees and 350+ 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; we are a pet-free market (service animals are allowed!).

This week at 5pm, J'Adore Dance will be at the market leading an activity in the green space on the east side of the market.  It is going to be a blast!

 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.

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.

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!
