Fresh Sheet: July 1, 2015

Celebrate Canada Day At SWEFM!
Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center Parking Lot from 4:00-7:30

What better way to spend Canada Day than supporting Canadian businesses and eating our regional produce!  The market will be open to the community on July 1 and will be featuring a fun trivia game for adults and a scavenger hunt for kids. 

Join us here on the "Market Fresh Sheet" every Tuesday to see what's fresh and happening at your favourite farmers' market!

This week, some of our wonderful volunteers will be hosting a maple leaf scavenger hunt throughout the market for free Canada temporary tattoos and a chance to win a prize pack, and No Excuses will be leading a family Zumba class between 6:00 and 6:45 (weather permitting). Both activities are completely free and a great drop-in activity for those little ones who need to burn off some energy!
