Fresh Sheet: August 2, 2017

This week's Fresh Sheet is up!  

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

Our market is a wonderful place to support local businesses!  From family farms to local start-ups, these vendors are the heartbeat of the market.  Not only do they grow & create some of the best products in Alberta, but they employ locals, create financial independence for themselves, and have committments to our communities.  Be sure to stop and have a chat with these wonderful people, to learn more about their products and to hear their stories!

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 Edmonton & Area Land Trust  visiting. They work to protect natural areas to benefit wildlife and people, and to conserve biodiversity for everyone, always.  The group stewards these special places with volunteers and neighbours, who are critical to their work.  They also educate the public to protect nature for future generations..
