Fresh Sheet: June 26 Market

With (dare I say it....) 10 hours of sun in Wednesday's forecast, it's bound to be a great market! We will have an artist at the market this week, so pop by and see Samara's Art, or check out our facebook page to see a few of her paintings. There will also be a new jewellery vendor there, called Gypsy Byrd Designs... check out their profile on our website: SWEFM Artisans and Crafts People.

This week, Raspberry & Cocoa was featured in the Edmonton Journal's Blog, Eat My Words... chcek out their new item: a mocha croissant - a coffee pastry, with a dark chocolate filling and a delicious coffee glaze!

The fruit trucks are back and in full swing now that fruit is beginning to be in season in B.C.'s Okanagan Valley. We have three fruit vendors, back for the season. Stop by and see:
  • Red Apple (they will have strawberries, cherries and perhaps even raspberries at this week's market!)
  • AIG, they had beautiful strawberries last week, and this week they will be bringing along some Indian baking and salty snacks as well.
  • Steve & Dan's Fresh B.C Fruit will have strawberries, pears, apples, dehydrated apples, sparkling cider and a few other goodies.
And of course, the food trucks will be on site, anchoring both ends of the market... be sure to search them out and grab dinner with three great food prep styles to choose from :
  • Sailin' On (vegan), 
  • Bully (gourmet comfort food) 
  • Yellow Bird (Japanese fusion) 
Barring high winds and wild weather, the inflatable slide, face painter and balloon creator will be at our market for the kids. Kids can also stop by our community/info tent and work on a special craft.
