Fresh, the movie

Stay after the movie and meet the farmers of the Kannapolis Farmers Market.
Between 4 pm and 6 pm, the Chefs of 46 continue their weekly cooking demonstrations. Featured recipes for this Thursday showcase the use of raw vegetables and beans in tasty and filling vegetarian and vegan salads. Plenty of samples will be available for tasting.
Chair Yoga will be held at 4:30 pm to 5:15 pm followed by Yoga Basics at 5:45 pm to 6:45 pm.
