Fresh Sheet: July 13, 2016

Who Needs Candy When We Have Fruit?

Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center Parking Lot from 4-7:30

It's that time of year, market-goers: prime fruit season! Our fruit vendors are bringing the ripest produce available this month, from strawberries and blackberries to stone fruits like apricots, peaches, nectarines and plums. Keep your eyes peeled for fresh apples in the next few weeks as well: this weather has brought them a little earlier than usual this year! 

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!
