Learn to Make Your Own Kombucha

A workshop with Wild Oats staffer and kombucha brewer Evan Webb. Making kombucha is pretty easy, but it’s more fun with Evan to guide us! He will take participants step by step through the process, answer questions, and discuss the many benefits attributed to this ancient beverage. Each participant will receive a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) – a necessary component to making kombucha – and will take home the beginnings of their own kombucha brew in a half-gallon jar. Cost: $10, to cover cost of materials.

Small Business Saturday

November 29, all day. Shop small, and shop local on November 29 to support and celebrate America’s small businesses. Since 2010, Small Business Saturday has been scheduled strategically between Black Friday and Cyber Monday to encourage shoppers to spend their dollars locally, at the small businesses in their towns and neighborhoods, on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

Wild Oats Market has been a small community business for more than three decades – and since our beginning we have supported other small local businesses, like our local farmers, by selling their outstanding products – most of them organic and/or handmade – in our market. We hope you will plan to include us on your Small Business Saturday shopping spree. And thank you for your support!
