Fresh Sheet: September 6th, 2017

This week's Fresh Sheet is up!  

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

Can you believe it's September already?  The kids are heading back to school and the weather has gotten noticeably chillier in the past few weeks.  However, at the SWEFM we aren't ready to give up on outside fun just yet!  Join us this Wednesday for a bouncy castle, a Sprouts scavenger hunt, and some pretty HOT weather that will make it a fun afternoon out to ease back into the return to school and our goodbye to summer!

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!
