Fresh Sheet: July 15, 2015

Fresh Food Adventures Start Here!
Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center Parking Lot from 4:00-7:30

For those who eat seasonal food from farmers' markets every summer, shopping for our groceries every week becomes a fresh food adventure where we learn a little bit more about our local food system and the flavours of our region year after year. What type of potatoes available in July are your favourites? What can you create with kohlrabi this season? Do you like the taste of fresh fennel sauteed with organic sausages? Answer all of these questions and more by starting your own fresh food adventure at SWEFM this week!

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!
