Fresh Sheet: June 7, 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 a bustling place at opening, and then was struck by a late afternoon storm. Thank you to everyone who stuck out the bad weather with us, as our vendors depend on our guests to make their local businesses thrive.  In addition to supporting local, we see the SWEFM as a place where you can learn about your community, where the kids can enjoy activities and where families can grab a bite to eat while visiting with friends, neighbors and family. It is a place where community bonds are strengthened. Where the local economy is supported in a significant way. And where community spirit comes alive.

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 Peanut Butter & Jam Playgroup on site for community members to talk to.  This is a parent cooperative playgroup where parents & caregivers can chat over a cup of coffee while the kids play.  Located in the Brookside Hall, this SW Edmonton staple has been around for over 30 years! The City of Edmonton Elections & Census team will also be on site, answering questions about the upcoming Municipal Election.
