Ed-U-Kitchen relies upon the rewards of making learning fun while building the fundamentals of establishing good eating habits. Shoppers will have the opportunity to hop onto the blender bicycle and pedal to power the blender that will create their own healthy smoothie with produce direct from the stands of the Downtown Country Market. Samples will be available on a first-come first-served basis and a smoothie recipe card will be provided.
