Fresh Sheet: September 13th, 2017

This week's Fresh Sheet is up!  

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

Fall is finally here and with it comes  many beautiful colors. Come visit your local market to experience produce you can't find in your local grocery store. We have beautiful cauliflower in multiple colors including purple, green, classic white and yellow, and a gorgeous array.of squash.  Many of our artisans are also experimenting with autumn flavors, including everyone's favorite: pumpkin! The market is a beautiful place to shop and walk through before the white winter hits. 

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!
