Outdoor Market: There's lots of veggies and other great things at the Thursday evening and Saturday morning markets. Come join the fun! Thursday evening market from 3 to 8 pm until September 11. Saturday morning market from 10 am to 2 pm until September 27. Call the Yukon Made Store at 393-2255 for more information or to offer your assistance with either market.

12 Days of Christmas: Registration will happen on Tuesday August 19th at 6pm to 9pm (or until we are full) in the Yukon Made Store. Of course it will be a busy night so again we will NOT be selling memberships that day - if you are not a current member for the 2014 season you must update your membership earlier in the month (prior to registration day). All members who want to participate in the sale must first read this document (click here to read the -Is this Sale for You? document) and then print and fill out the registration form (click here for Registration form). It has become the new norm for a pre-line to form before registration opens so you may need to factor that into your evening plan.

2014 Membership: Can be purchased at the Yukon Made Store. Don't forget about the $50 volunteer fee. If you volunteered time in 2013, just let Colin or Chris know in the office. They'll help you figure out whether that meets the entire commitment or part of it. (And, there's no need to feel guilty if you didn't have time to volunteer - we hope you'll consider it $50 well spent.)

Yukon Made Store: Tuesday to Saturday. (Tuesday & Wednesday 11 - 5, Thursday & Friday 11 - 6, and Saturday from 11 until 4) You can find the work of over 20 local artisans as well as information about the outdoor market and a library for the Growers of Organic Food Yukon and information about the production of nutrition facts panels for local products.

Fireweed Community Market Gear: Fleece hoodies, T-shirts, toques and ball caps - all embroidered with the Fireweed Community Market Society logo. You can find them in the Yukon Made Store - what a great way to show your support for the market!

Volunteer Opportunities: Want to know about volunteering in 2014? We are always happy to have extra hands. (And it will offset your volunteer fee in 2015.) Check the list. If you have an idea for something you'd like to do that you don't see on the list, just give us a call 393-2255.

Plant a Row, Grow a Row Campaign: plan on growing an extra row of vegetables next year and donate the harvest to the Whitehorse Food Bank. For more information: Phone Julie: (867) 393-2265 www.whitehorsefoodbank.ca
