A Successful Cookbook Swap!
Thank you to all who participated in our first cookbook swap at the market last month! Due to the popularity of the recent cookbook swap, the John G.

Talk on Transitioning to a Vegan Lifestyle
As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting community wellness, the Bennington Farmers’ Market will present an information session on transitioning to a vegan lifestyle Saturday, March 17. Mount Anthony Union High School sophomore and food enthusiast Gabriela Griffin-Leon will begin her talk at 10:30 AM in the Lounge of Bennington First Baptist Church.

At Griffin-Leon’s information session she will discuss how she began her vegan journey, how she maintains a healthy vegan lifestyle in social settings, and even share some recipes she has created for mac n cheese, corn chowder, fat-free French fries, and blondies!
