Fresh Sheet: July 11, 2018

This week's Fresh Sheet is up and we are lovin' the sun!

Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center

in Parking Lot E from 4 to 7:30pm

Last week the market was hot and busy! The bouncy castle was a huge hit with the kids, as were our free Canada Day treats.  It was a fantastic summer day, and we loved seeing all of the families, kids, and community members coming out for a day at the market.  It's looking like this week will be just as hot & lovely so come on out and soak up the sun at Southwest Edmonton's local community market.

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  Strathcona Place 55+ Centre , a city-funded centre that has activities, recreation, art programs, special events, and outreach services.  They offer many programs for the 55+ community including inter-generational and multicultural activities.  The center is located at the heart of the university area and is volunteer driven to serve the needs of the community.   https://www.strathconaplace.com/  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", a wonderful photographer.
