Apple Sampling with Lizi at the Farmer’s Market
Stop by the Brattleboro Farmer’s Market to sample some cider and apples with Lizi!

Fridays with Katherine at the Co-op
In our Co-op’s September “Fun Foods from Around the World” kids’ class on September 20th, we will be making a Portuguese soup called Caldo Verdé. Stop by to try it with Katherine and sign your kids up for the class.
Fun Foods from Around the World: Portugal
Caldo Verdé is a traditional Portuguese soup and the star dish on our culinary journey to Portugal this month. We will make this soup which calls for sausage, potatoes, cabbage and Swiss chard (the Vermont Harvest of the Month vegetable). Don’t worry, we will make a vegetarian version as well, so everyone can enjoy this delicious soup. Kids will be introduced to the culture of this vibrant country and even learn a few words of Portuguese during the class. In the Brattleboro Food Co-op Cooking Classroom, Canal St. entrance, Thursday, September 20, 3:30-5pm. This class is free for all, but you must register: 802-246-2821 or Shareholders@BrattleboroFoodCoop.coop
Free Class for Kids: Summer in Vermont – Pickles
In this class, kids will learn how to make simple pickles using the bounty of summer vegetables and fruits available. Co-op tween Shoshana Davidovits will lead the way, sharing the recipe for her family’s famous sweet pickle relish. We will chop, mix, season and store our flavorful creations in a mason jar to bring home. In the Brattleboro Food Co-op Cooking Classroom, Canal St. entrance, Wednesday, August 29, 3:30-5pm. This class is free for all, but you must register: 802-246-2821 or Shareholders@BrattleboroFoodCoop.coop
