We have several events coming up this summer at the Coop! On the 27th of May at 2pm we have Tie Dye and Ice Cream for 25 dollars! Come on down for some ice cream and dye a shirt or a tote bag! More info here http://www.anacortesfoodcoop.com/events/ Also in June we are doing another cheesemaking class, it filled up quickly last time, so register soon if you know you want to come! In July, we will have a class on cooking with local berries as well. As we gear up for summer, we will have many festivals and events going on all season. The Coop has a great location, as we are far removed from the congestion and parking woes created by the events we all enjoy, so you can shop without any worry of finding parking or being stuck in tourist traffic. We hope to see you soon!
