Hudson Valley Hospital Center (HVHC) continues its healthy eating initiative by hosting monthly farmer’s markets through November. The next HVHC farmer’s market will be held on Tuesday, August 28, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the parking lot on Crompond Road, near the hospital’s main entrance. Parking is free for market shoppers.
“By offering this monthly series of farmer’s markets we hope to encourage everyone to buy local, fresh produce and educate the community on how to maintain a nutritious, healthy diet,” says HVHC president John Federspiel.
Future HVHC farmer’s markets will take place on September 25, October 30 and November 20. The series is an expansion of HVHC’s Seeds for Health, an educational and therapeutic program for cancer patients and their families. It launched this spring with the opening of the hospital’s Organic Garden for Healing, which is maintained by patients, employees, and members of the community. Staff from HVHC’s nutrition and education departments will be at each market to discuss integrating healthy eating practices into everyday life.
Hudson Valley Hospital Center is located at 1980 Crompond Road (Route 202) in Cortlandt Manor. For more information call 800.482.HVHC or visit HVHC.org.
