Fresh Sheet: September 25, 2019

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

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 prize giveaways. The grand prize is a basket stuffed with the most delicious food from the SWEFM vendors, and is valued at over $350. Second and third prizes are honey and pies! All you need to do to enter is fill out one of our surveys at the orange Information Tent!

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 third last market of the year; Oct. 9th is our final market day.

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 excluded)
