Fresh Sheet: August 30, 2017

This week's Fresh Sheet is up!  

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

It's the last summer market before the kids head back to school, so come on out for one more pre-school market bash!  There will plenty of vendors on site, as well as the Terry Fox Foundation & Edmonton Food bank Community Tent booths, buskers, and of course iced treats (we have Cafe Bel Air, Cravings Artisan Gelato, and The Davinci Cone in attendance this week).  Be sure to check out what the fruit and veggie vendors have in stock; the variety changes by the week.  We are between the summer & autumn growing seasons and there are fruit & veggies from both out now, making it a prime time to shop for fresh produce!

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 Food Bank "Plant a Row, Grow a Row" program.  Through the Plant a Row, Grow a Row project, a portion of your vegetables you grow in your garden can be conveniently donated to Edmonton’s Food Bank. How often is it that you can enjoy a favorite hobby and help others in your community at the same time? This project is a fun way to do both. It was initially started in Winnipeg in 1986 and came to Edmonton in 1998. Edmonton’s Food Bank sponsors this program in Edmonton and area, which invites local gardeners to grow an extra row of vegetables or earmark extra vegetables for donation to Edmonton’s Food Bank.  We will also be hosting the Terry Fox Foundation.  For over 30 years The Terry Fox Foundation has worked to achieve Terry’s vision – a world without cancer.  The Foundation will be providing info on the Terry Fox Run which is happening in September.
