Fresh Sheet: May 27, 2015

Discover Fresh, Local Foods This Week!
Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center Parking Lot from 4:00-7:30

Your favourite outdoor market continues to grow this week, with more vendors to discover. When shopping for local foods and crafts, be sure to ask the vendors about the story behind their products and businesses. If you have questions about the sustainability, health benefits or production practices behind your food, the farmers' market is the place to ask!

Join us here on the "Market Fresh Sheet" every Tuesday to see what's fresh and happening at your favourite farmers' market! For market shopping tips, be sure to check out this page to ensure your market visit is everything it should be. And remember, please leave Fido at home- no dogs are allowed where food is being served!
