What’s Fresh- Week of April 16th, 2018

We hope you are all staying dry in this rainy weather we’ve been having. With any luck, this wet weather will mean more lovely produce for us all to enjoy! In the coming weeks, we have some events coming up that are of note. This weekend, the Coop is going to have a booth at Future Fest, which is being hosted by Transition Fidalgo. The Coop will be providing some yummy food at this event for you to enjoy!
Coming up on Saturday, April 28th at 5pm at the Anacortes Public Library, the Coop will have its annual Member Meeting and Potluck, and at this event, we will be voting in two new board members. Anyone interested in applying to be on the board should contact the Coop at anacortesfoodcoop@gmail.com. If you are a Coop member you don’t want to miss this event! On Sunday, April 29th at 2pm, we have our Taste the Season event at the Coop, where you can taste our local fruits and veggies and go home with some wonderful recipes to try!
