Bread From Fresh Local Grains Now Available At The Coop!

I was really excited to learn that Green Mountain Flour has started delivering bread to the Brattleboro Food Coop. Green Mountain Flour's flour (is that redundant?) has been available at the coop for a while now, but not their bread.

It will be really nice not to have to go all the way up to Windsor to get great bread made from flour that was grown locally and milled just in time for each bake.

David William Fischer: Edible Mushrooms and Plants in the Brattleboro Area

Due to a scheduling conflict, Chris Matherly, the mushroom hunter, will not be able to attend this workshop. Instead, meet mushroom expert David William Fischer at Brooks Memorial Library on Thursday, September 11, at 5 p.m. in the meeting room. Fischer, an internationally-known mycologist and ecologist, authored the classic books Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America and Mushrooms of Northeastern North America.

He has been a featured guest on NPR's "Science Friday" program and his stunning mushroom photography has been spotlighted in numerous books and magazines. His web site — AmericanMushrooms.com — is a leading source of mushroom information. Fischer's presentation will discuss edible wild mushrooms and plants in the Brattleboro area, with a 45-minute slideshow on how to safely find, identify and prepare common, delicious species. After his presentation, Fischer will be on hand to answer questions — you can bring your mushrooms for him to identify — and will have autographed copies of his books available.

A Sweet Moment

Most of the time predatory capitalists are surrounded by security personnel and handlers. Journalists are never allowed access to these people unless it is assured that they will serve up softballs and continue the public deception -- that black is actually white.

Occasionally though the castle walls get breached and important figures are asked real questions and face real accusations.

The Case of the Vanishing Farmer's Market

It seems like the Wednesday Farmers Market located on the Whetstone Path near the co-op is slowly disappearing. Of course it has always been a smaller market that the big Saturday one but today it was really surprising. There were only 2 small farms there-both selling very limited types of produce. No berries to be found anywhere. There was the flower man; a bakery with a few tasty looking morsels. the always popular Thai food truck (with a very long line); there may have been someone selling honey but that was it. Definitely not worth the trip if you weren't planning on going to the co -op (where I was able to find local blueberries).
