Fresh Sheet: Aug. 1 2018

This week's Fresh Sheet is up and we are excited to let you know that we have a bouncy castle planned this week!

Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center

in Parking Lot E from 4 to 7:30pm

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 commitments 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!

NOTICE!: We have a fun market planned this week, with a bouncy castle for the kids (free-of-charge to bouncers!)

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; we are a pet-free market (service animals are allowed!).

 This week in the Community Tent we will be hosting the SW Edmonton Seniors Association.  SWESA is a non-profit association that was established in 2011 to address the social, cultural and recreational interests of people over 55 in southwest Edmonton. They offer a wide breadth of programming including information sessions on technology, lifestyle, health, and current events.

This year we launched our  Young Vendors Program,  which gives 13 to 17 year olds a chance to sell their homemade products .   This week we are hosting  " Glimpses by Rebekah ", who is bringing her wonderful photographs.
