Mini-marché 20 février/ Feb. 20 Mini-Market

This past Wednesday’s Mini-market had to be cancelled due to the snowstorm. The delivery truck was not going to make it through! This coming Wednesday, February 20th, we will be offering essentially the same list of produce, with most of the prices either staying the same or reduced. As always, come by the Mission between 10:30 and 3:30 on Wednesday to shop for fruit and veg. Come before 12:30 if you want to take advantage of the community lunch. All are welcome.

On a dû annuler le mini-marché ce dernier mercredi à cause de la tempête de neige. Le camion de livraison ne pouvait pas passer. La semaine prochaine, mercredi 20 février, nous offrirons à peu près les mêmes produits; pour la plupart les prix restent pareils que la semaine dernière ou même plus bas. Comme toujours, vous pouvez passer entre 10H30 et 15H30 pour faire vos achats. Pour profiter du repas communautaire, présentez-vous avant 12H30. Tous sont les bienvenus!

Mini-Market January 30

UPDATE: Here is the price list for this Wednesday’s Mini-market. Voici la liste pour cette semaine.
