Fresh Sheet: August 16, 2017

This week's Fresh Sheet is up!  

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

We are halfway through August, and we are seeing a slow transition of the fruit & veggies available at the market.  For example, garden peas and raspberry season is over, while cauliflower, corn, pickling cucumbers, and melons have been making their appearances. Soon we will be seeing a wonderful array of squash available!

It pays to eat what is in season locally.  Food always tastes best when it’s picked at its peak and sold within days. Often, food traveling long and far is picked prematurely and then refrigerated to prevent spoiling.  Come to the SWEFM every Wednesday until Oct. 4th to load up on what's in ripe & season in our wonderful province (and in BC, for your fruit needs).

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!
