We have offered kids' crafts for a few weeks running at our SWEFM Info tent at the market and they have been a seriously big hit with the under 12 crowd. Momstown has now stepped up and offered to take this over, hosting a series of farming-themed crafts at the market each week. This week, children can make apple print paintings to take home from their trip to the market. As always, these crafts are free for all children to enjoy.
Breezesta has partnered with the Southwest Edmonton Farmers' Market to act as a living showroom for their unique outdoor furniture. They will be back once again! The tables, chairs and rockers that you see all over the market come in a wide colour selection and a terrific array of sizes and are incredibly durable. Grab dinner at a food truck and have a seat... and browse a brochure (they are laid out on their tables if you are interested in them for your own porch, deck or patio).
We've done it! We've really tried to develop our social media presence this year, trying to reach out to and connect with our market community in more ways and our following has grown! We reached 1000 facebook likes this week!
Come help us celebrate! Meet us at the information tent, and say "I liked SWEFM on FACEBOOK" and we'll give you a free SWEFM market bag (while supplies last).
This week we have a number of artisan vendors at the market, making this week an artistic showcase! Be sure to build in time to browse their stalls and experience the creativity that they have to offer. Be inspired by:
