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.

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.
This SATURDAY (8/16) we will be extending our hours from noon till 8 pm. Come join us for alfresco dinner with a view of the river!

Come to market and spend EBT dollars and get *free* matching coupons-- double your money up to $10 per market visit!
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).
Consider meandering up the West River Valley and into Grafton today for the 2nd Annual Grafton Food Festival.
All kinds of happenings under their party tents starting with a Jr Iron Chef competition at 10:30 followed by cooking demonstrations all day long. More than 20 vendors will be sampling and selling their wares including several local food producers. There will be a petting zoo and 'interactive hula-hooping/hoop dance demonstration' to entertain the young ones. Today's festivities run from 10am - 6pm.
Tomorrow's schedule involves a cooking demonstration by Celebrity Chef Mary Ann Esposito and a farmers' market on the inn grounds.
The Brattleboro Farmers' Market announces the arrival of Harvest Health Coupons for EBT customers! Use your EBT card at the manager's booth at market and get free matching value in coupons- up to $10, per visit.
The Brattleboro Farmers' Market will have Harvest Health Coupons while supplies last, at both Saturday and Wednesday locations. Use these coupons to stretch your EBT dollars, which can buy fresh berries and vegetables of all kinds, maple syrup, jams, and honey, eggs and meat, fresh breads and granola to take home (EBT and Harvest Health CANNOT purchase hot lunches).
The Wednesday Farmers' Market is back downtown by the Brattleboro Food Coop! 10-2 every Wednesday, our farmers (plus Bijou Bakes and Anon's Thai Cuisine) offer the freshest locally-grown produce and prepared lunches and baked goods. EBT and debit are welcome; come by for some convenient, farmer-direct shopping--mid-week!
Good nutrition is a key factor in lifelong health, but many senior citizens are cutting back on their food budgets as expenses rise. To encourage healthy eating, the U.S. Department of Agriculture offers the 3SquaresVT program to help eligible Vermonters buy nutritious food.
The benefits come on an EBT card that looks like a debit or credit card; there are no “food stamps” anymore. If everyone in the household is 65 or older or gets SSI, then the benefits may be distributed as cash, deposited directly into the family’s bank account.
JUNE 18th-- The Wednesday Market opens downtown by the Co-op on the Whetstone Pathway! We've got local farms offering freshly-harvested veggies, plants, strawberries, and cut flowers, plus maple products and preserves, fresh eggs, and more. A new baker, "Bijou Bakery- Jewels from the Oven", joins us with delectable Italian baked goods, and of course there is the legendary Anon's Thai Cuisine. EBT and Debit welcome! Open 10am to 2pm.

And while you’re there you can also get dessert at the bake sale sponsored by the First Congo Church.
For $6 you can get half a barbecued chicken, or you can enjoy it with sides of baked beans and coleslaw for $10. The recipes used to make these goodies have a local history.
