Health & Recipes

The Co-op is filled with folks that have a variety of food and nutrition knowledge, as well as information on how herbs and supplements can enhance one's health. In this section, we'll provide updated information on food and nutrition as well as showcase the many healthy recipes found at the Co-op. Check back often as we'll continue to grow and expand the archive. If you have a favorite recipe to share, let us know.

All of our recipes are tested by Caroline Homan, City Market's Food Education Coordinator, or other City Market staff. Caroline works to find recipes that include local ingredients, are easy to prepare, and are affordable. Plus all of the ingredients in our featured recipes can be found at the Co-op. Bon Appetit!
