Wolfville Wednesday Market: Get Fed! (4-7pm), May until December 19, 2012
Markets are every week from 4-7pm, and we have some great new promotions and events to go along with them! Along with the regular happenings of the Wednesday markets ($10 market supper deal, kid’s craft table, lots of great vendors) we’re also introducing community health themes. Read on for more information:
Community Health Themes
The Wolfville Farmers' Market is proud to introduce weekly Community Health nights at the Wednesday markets. Discover the vibrancy in our community, learn something new, and hear from many different community organizations as they spread the word about the wonderful work they do!

We're giving away $20 Market Dollars every week!
At the Wolfville Wednesday Market, every time you buy a market supper, or spend $10 with any one vendor, you will receive a ballot to be entered into a draw to win $20 Market Dollars! A winner will be drawn every week, and the only limit to how many times you can enter is how much you spend at the market. For every ten dollars you spend with any one vendor, you will receive one entry. For example: Buy one market supper, then $10 of bread from one vendor, then $10 of soap from another, you get three entries. See? Simple! Draw can only be entered during Wednesday markets.
Community Market Suppers
Wondering what a “market supper” is, exactly? At the Wednesday markets, if you buy $10 in market vouchers, we’ll give you free bread & salad, as well as real plates, cutlery and glasses to use. Then you can take your $10 around and spend it with any vendor to complete your dinner. You may even have some left over for a coffee or dessert after!

A Poem for The Wolfville Farmers Market: An Unfinished Piece of Work
At The Wolfville Farmers Market,
I greet the meat
that met the meat
Some days, I feel like meat,
not buying it or eating it—
that I am it.
I’m a fruit,
or I might just veg,...
