Fresh Sheet: August 23, 2017

This week's Fresh Sheet is up!  

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

The dog days of summer are soon coming to an end, but don't despair... we still have seven more markets to go!  That means seven more Wednesdays of local fruit & veggies, handcrafts, delicious foods, Sprouts tokens, buskers, and community spirit!  Come out to the market to enjoy time with friends & community members, grab dinner or a snack, and to soak up the rays of the beautiful August sunshine.

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 Southwest Edmonton Seniors Association. This group was established to address the social, cultural and recreational interests of people in the 55+ age group residing in South West Edmonton.  Come say "hello" on Wednesday!
