Fresh Sheet: July 25, 2018

This week's Fresh Sheet is up and we are ready for another great market!

Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center

in Parking Lot E from 4 to 7:30pm

With some of the province's best produce, eggs, meat, and other ingredients arriving at our community market every Wednesday, we encourage you to make every meal made with local foods a celebration! Start dinnertime conversations about the taste of the new potatoes, the sweetness of the raspberries and the flavour combinations of your take-home meals. When everyone at the dinner table is vocal about their appreciation for the meal, it not only makes the cook feel great, but it gives our fantastic local foods the attention and celebration they deserve!

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!).
