Fresh Sheet: June 17, 2015

Meet Your Farmers At SWEFM!
Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center Parking Lot from 4:00-7:30

Farmers' markets are the best opportunity to meet your farmer and learn more about food production. If you've ever wondered how your food is grown and the amount of work it takes for that delicious produce to wind up on your plate, visiting your community farmers' market gives you the chance to ask the questions you've been pondering. You may just leave with a greater appreciation of your favourite fruit, vegetable or meat!

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!
