Fresh Sheet: June 14, 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 THE place to be.  With deep blue skies and a high of +29, it truly felt like the first day of summer!  Enjoying over 2000 attendees and 300+ 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- no dogs are allowed where food is being served!
