Summer Cooking Classes

Summer Cooking Classes

Summer is a time of fresh produce and easy, cooling foods. If you don’t grow your own produce, there are farmers' markets in the City of Fredericksburg and Colonial Beach, as well as Spotsylvania and Stafford counties. In June and July, come to the library for free cooking classes, and find out how to use those wonderful summer foods.

April Payne with Virginia Cooperative Extension will be at Salem Church Branch talking about inexpensive ways to make the most of your produce and enliven your home recipes.
