Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage will hold a grand opening ceremony at its newest Texas location in the new Town Square Shopping Center at 3910 Lawrence Rd. in Wichita Falls on Thursday.
“We invite the Wichita Falls community to come in see what we’re about,” said Kemper Isely, Natural Grocers co-president. “While they are here, shoppers can also pick up some practical ideas for healthy eating during one of our free cooking demonstrations or take part in a free nutritional education seminar.”
Wichita Falls Natural Grocers will offer its first free cooking class in the store’s demonstration kitchen at 6 p.m. Thursday. Nationally recognized nutrition expert Cary Tamburro will show how to make “Smoothies to Jump Start Your Health.” She will demonstrate organic, gluten-free and dairy-free options. On opening day, there will be various cooking demos, including ideas for Paleo wraps.
