This week we are hosting our final visit of the Edmonton Food Bank's "Plant a Row, Grow a Row" program, which will be set up in the Community Tent.  They will be accepting donations of  non-perishable goods & fresh produce from the vendors, as well as any extra produce you have left from your garden.  Also, we are having 3 Thanksgiving Basket giveaways. These baskets are stuffed with the most delicious food from the SWEFM vendors, and are valued at over $500! All you need to do to enter is fill out one of our surveys, or bring a donation for the Food Bank.

A reminder to all of our Sprouts: please bring any extra tokens you have been saving at home to the last markets so we can collect them for more kids to use next season!  This is also the time to remind you that this is the second last market of the year; Oct. 3rd is our final market day.
