Farmers & Friends Cookbook
The Women's Auxiliary of the Co-Op Farmer's Market will be publishing a cookbook in honor of our 75th Anniversary called " Farmers & Friends". The cookbook will be filled with all kind of delicious recipes from our market members & vendors, and we are opening it up to the public. Our customers may also put in their favorite recipes. The cookbooks will go on sale during our 2014 season and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will go to the Women's Resource Center, Scranton, PA.
