Fresh Sheet: May 23, 2018

This week's Fresh Sheet is up and we are full of springtime vendors and delicious food trucks

Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center

in Parking Lot E from 4 to 7:30pm

While this is just the beginning of the 2017 outdoor market season in Edmonton, there are already so many great products to check out.   Before the flood of fabulous BC fruit and the full harvests of our local veggie vendors hit the stalls, why not take the time now to buy bedding plants to raise your own food, pick up some locally raised meat to put on the BBQ, or treat yourself to dinner made by one of our great prepared food vendors.  Bust out of the winter rut and try a flavor you've never had before, or pickup something new for your home or garden!

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!).
