Fresh Sheet: Aug. 15 2018

This week's Fresh Sheet is up and we want to make sure you know it is  Bee Day at the SWEFM this week (special events = extra fun!)

Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center

in Parking Lot E from 4 to 7:30pm

We are halfway through August, and we are seeing a slow transition of the fresh produce available at the market.  For example, the season for some fruits & veggies has passed, while cauliflower, corn, pickling cucumbers, and melons have been making their appearances. Soon we will be seeing a wonderful array of squash available!

It pays to eat what is in season locally.  Food always tastes best when it’s picked at its peak and sold within days. Often, food traveling long and far is picked prematurely and then refrigerated to prevent spoiling.  Come to the SWEFM every Wednesday until Oct. 3rd to load up on what's in ripe & season in our wonderful province (and in BC, for your fruit needs).

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 Edmonton Opera.   This organization's purpose and vision is to present opera that inspires and moves their audiences.  They will be promoting their upcoming season and will have a draw to win free season's tickets!  The SWEFM's very first  Bee Day  is happening this week! Come to the market to chat  with the folks from the  John Janzen Nature Center , check out an observation (clear) bee hive, displays, costumes, and more.  We also have a coloring contest and the chance to win bee-themed prizes!
