Here we are in July! In this month, we typically find ourselves knees deep in an abundance of vibrant, local, fresh produce.

So, what to do with all these greens? Here are a few tips that will help you turnip the beet, on your average, every day, mixed green salad.

Over the summer, City Market organizes farm tours where we bring community members to different local farms across the state to learn about and gain a deeper understanding of where our food comes from. On Friday, June 15th City Market staff and participants gathered at our Downtown store to begin a full day of farm tour fun where we visited two of our vendors, The Farm Between and Lewis Creek Farm.

Warmer weather means more time spent outside, and what better way to spend your evenings than behind a grill cooking up some smoky, sweet, mouthwatering meals for family and friends. Last Thursday, City Market class participants gathered at the Intervale Center down by the Winooski River for a Grilling Fundamentals class. The class was taught by our very own Executive Chef, Michael Clauss. From managing his own catering business to running restaurant kitchens, Michael had tons of tips and tricks to share with the group.

Here at the Co-op, you may have noticed a recent surge in products containing CBD. While we do carry an array of CBD-infused products from Nutty Steph’s chocolate hearts to Luce Farm’s CBD honey and even Kimball Brook Farms infused iced teas, this trend is not specific to City Market or even to Vermont.

Stop! In the name of vegetables. Before you throw out - or even compost - those kale stems from your morning smoothie, imagine the many recipes you could create with them! Okay, so that might be a stretch but have no fear because the zero waste food movement is gaining momentum and before you know it, you will be cooking with celery leaves daily.

On a warm and sunny Friday afternoon, with the landscape speckled in hues of red and orange, 14 City Market Members and staff jumped on a bus, and hit Route 7 to make our way south to Addison County. The area is known for many farms and food producers, and our group was excitedly headed to visit goats, a creamery, an orchard, and a cidery. It’s no secret that cheese and apples go together, and we got to see them both at their sources.
