Market Thymes Newsletter - September 4, 2013
Welcome to September and an abundance of fresh local vegetables and fruit. The selection does not get any better than right now.
If you’ve been thinking about stocking up on fruit and veggies for freezing or canning, now would be a good time. We are down to only four Wednesdays left in our 2013 series, the last one being on the 25th.
Pianist, singer, songwriter Colin Kadey is back to entertain. Pick up a snack from one of the bakers or a hot dog, smokie, or vegetable smokie and a cool drink from Helm’s Mobile Kitchen and grab a chair under the big Prospera Credit Union tent and relax before finishing your shopping.
Also check out the Kids’ activity area sponsored and coordinated by the Best for Babies program.
This is the last week to get in on the draw for the portable barbeque from Blackwood Home Hardware and meat from a couple of our Saturday vendors. Entries are by a minimum donation of $1.00 to the Abbotsford Food Bank.
It’s our 10th birthday but
we’re giving away the gifts.
For every $10 you spend at the
Abbotsford Farm & Country Market
through October 12th you will receive an entry form to win a super pack full of products from our vendors.
