You are invited to VFC Local Food Fest – come & celebrate all things local!
This all-day event is a replacement for our much loved P6 Tailgate Party. Since we have so much more space inside our store, we’ve moved the party indoors.
We’ll have a variety of local farmers and producers around the store offering free samples of their delicious products. There will be multiple free classes throughout the day in our Co-op Community Room as well as prize drawings! Family-friendly fun for everyone!

Dairy-free Milk Alternatives: While we aren't ones to deter you from enjoying the ridiculously high-quality dairy selection here, we want you to know that these dairy-alternative milks are also available for you! Be sure to ask VFC Staff which ones they prefer. A lot of us have our favorites, depending on how we use them.
Pictured: We combined the three items above to create an open face sandwich, then added pickled garlic scapes and sliced avocado on a bed of mixed greens... Now THAT’S healthy fast food!

She told her mom at four years old that she wanted to either be an artist or a farmer, but quickly admitted she’s not a very good farmer. Luckily for Splinter, her artistic skills are exceptional! Her watercolor and mixed media based paintings-turned-greeting cards invoke sentiments of peace and connectivity with nature.
To prepare for the ongoing construction and disruption of workspace during our remodel, the VFC Deli will be downsizing some programs in order to consolidate our supplies and packaging while maintaining a safe kitchen for all of our excellent staff. Here’s what it means for our customers:

Crystel is one of those unsuspiciously talented artists. She not only has a knack for colors and fabric patterns, but has a great sense of humor, too!
