Fresh Sheet: August 12, 2015

Bring Your Sunscreen!
Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center Parking Lot from 4:00-7:30

The weather for this week's market is looking hot and sunny (knock on wood!), so it's the perfect time to visit your community farmers' market for great music, activities, food and crafts! We love how our market becomes full of laughter, dancing, jumping and running when the heat comes out, but remember to protect your family from the sun and heat by bringing sunscreen and a big water bottle! If you forget, the info tent always has sunscreen, water and first aid supplies on hand for guests who need them, which gives you one more reason to stop by and say hello to our fabulous volunteers before grabbing your local groceries! 

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