“In addition to the food, every week the Market will host wellness and health professionals to educate the public about different health topics including how diet can improve diabetes, heart disease, obesity, arthritis, thyroid disease, and other wellness options and opportunities,” shared Olivia Whiteman, a wellness coach and one of the Market coordinators.

Mirza says that SNAP, WIC and vouchers will be accepted.
