Member-Owner Appreciation Day is Saturday, December 7. On Member Days held four times a year at Wild Oats Market, member-owners save 5% on most products store-wide (exclusions are beer & wine, special orders, consignment items, and gift cards). Throughout the day local suppliers will be at the store to sample their delicious products. We will be hosting:

Provisions International from White River Junction, Vermont – specialty cheeses and gourmet foods – 11 am – 2 pm. They will be sampling local cheeses for perfect holiday platters, from 11 am-2 pm.

McKenzie’s Meats from Burlington, Vermont – these authentic deli meats are what we use in our deli sandwiches and what we sell in our own Fresh Meats department.  They will be demoing at the store from 11 am-3 pm

We will be demoing Runa Guayusa Tea from Brooklyn, NY, from 11 am-3 pm – nearly twice the antioxidants as green tea!

Klara’s Cookies from Great Barrington, Mass. will be here from 11 am-2 pm. Klara bakes these classic European-style cookies using recipes that have been in her family for generations. They go perfectly with hot cocoa and other seasonal drinks, and make delightful presents.

We are also expecting Aqua Vitea Kombucha from Bristol, Vermont, makers of organic kombucha sold in our Bulk Department, on Saturday from 11 am – 3 pm. Have you tried our newest flavor from Aquea Kombucha, mulled cider?

From 3-6 pm our representative from Baystate Wines will be here for a wine tasting. We will select some reds and whites that we think you will enjoy! ALL DAY savings on wine & beer – buy 6 bottles of wine & save $10; buy 4 six-packs & save $5. This special applies to all shoppers, whether you are a member of the co-op or not.

And, beginning around 2 pm, we’ll have Christmas cookie decorating for the kids taking place in the café. Our bakery will supply ginger and sugar cookies for decorating, along with white frosting (no dyes). We will have some “decorations” for your kids to add, like cranberries, raisins, coconut, and chocolate chips.
