Summer is the best time of the season to head to your local farmers market to enjoy the bounty of ripe fruits and vegetables right at your fingertips. There are many benefits to buying local, even if the produce is not necessarily organic.
Here are some reasons why farmers markets can be beneficial for your health and wallet:
The annual Carroll Hospital Farmers Market returns Thursday next week to bring fresh produce and delicious treats for the community. A collection of local farmers and business owners will be attending the markets each week with a new selection of fresh merchandise, all harvested or prepared the day before. It’s more important now than ever to support the local farmers and small businesses in our community because of the impact the pandemic had on the way we shopped over the last year.
After Cancer articles address topics for those in survivorship. This month, dietitian Mindy Athas shares ways to lower inflammation and improve the immune system through nutrition for general good health.
Inflammation is linked with healing when it’s short term or acute, like with a skin cut, but chronic or long-term inflammation can wreak havoc on your immune system, making you vulnerable to illness and disease.
Each year, Carroll Hospital hosts a seasonal farmers market to help the community access healthy, locally sourced produce and products. Our market’s farmers and vendors come from the many corners of Carroll County to share the fruits of their labor.
This year, the weekly market kicks off on Thursday, July 2 and concludes Thursday, September 17 on the Carroll Hospital campus. Hours of operation are 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
