Fresh Sheet: May 31, 2017

This week's Fresh Sheet is up!  After a windy, wet Wednesday last week that forced the market's canellation, we are chomping at the bit to get back to enjoying friends, family, and community at our lovely open-air market. 

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

While these are early days in the 2017 outdoor market season in Edmonton, there are already so many great products to check out.   Before the flood of fabulous BC fruit and the full harvests of our local veggie vendors hit the stalls, why not take the time now to buy bedding plants to raise your own food, pick up some locally raised meat to put in a stew on a chilly evening, or treat yourself to dinner made by one of our great prepared food vendors.  Bust out of the winter rut and try a flavor you've never had before, or pickup something new for your home or garden!

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 Terwillegar Neighborhood Crime Watch group available for community members to talk to.  They are an arm of the Edmonton Neighborhood Watch that work with community members, the neighborhood enhancement team, and the police to provide information and support around local crime.
