City Market

With this interactive and hands-on tour, participants will learn how to shop for affordable, fresh, long-lasting, and nutritious foods at City Market. We will begin by exploring the Produce and Bulk departments, learning a simple method for finding the best value on fruits, vegetables, grains, and beans by paying attention to the price per pound. Then we will enter the Grocery aisles and Perishables coolers, to learn how to become savvy label readers as we shop for nourishing, long-lasting foods that contain 5 ingredients or fewer. No matter what kind of diet you follow, these pennywise tools will help you stock your kitchen with a variety of healthy, local, and even organic foods and develop a better understanding of Co-op sales.

If the date and time above doesn’t work for your schedule, or if you would feel more comfortable with a one-on-one individualized tour, please contact our Outreach and Education Coordinator, Meredith Knowles, at mknowles@citymarket.coop or 802-861-9757.

Probiotics, whether in the form of manufactured supplements or fermented foods, are increasingly recognized as beneficial additions to a balanced diet. What exactly are probiotics though, and how do they differ from prebiotics, which is another term we're starting to hear more regularly? Join Dr. Eric Garza, a food systems instructor at the University of Vermont and local health and wellness enthusiast, for a talk that will explore the differences between probiotics and prebiotics and the benefits of both. This will be an interactive talk, so questions are encouraged.
