Fresh Sheet: July 8, 2015

Celebrate the Season!
Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center Parking Lot from 4:00-7:30

With some of the country's best produce arriving at our community market every Wednesday, we encourage you to make every meal made with local foods a celebration! Start dinnertime conversations about the taste of the new potatoes, the sweetness of the raspberries and the flavour combinations of your take-home meals. When everyone at the dinner table is vocal about their appreciation for the meal, it not only makes the cook feel great, but it gives our fantastic local foods the attention and celebration they deserve!

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!  

Nutrition Tours will be available this week, courtesy of our wonderful nutrition student volunteers from the University of Alberta. Janna, Helen and Chelsey will be on-site between 6 & 7:30pm to answer your nutritional questions, take you on tours of the market and walk you through some of the topics that are explored in our Grab-and-Go nutritional pamphlets. When you're done, you can take home the pamphlet to help you eat healthier every day and quiz your friends on the things you've learned!

This week's Nutrition Tour Theme is Eating For Longevity. Studies have shown that people living in Blue Zones are living long, happy lives. Take this tour to learn about these fascinating studies and the ways in which you can adapt the habits of Blue Zone cultures from around the world to your life here in Edmonton.
