The Toledo Farmers’ Market will return to UT Medical Center this week for its third consecutive year.
UT employees, students and volunteers as well as local community members can purchase fresh, local produce and kettle corn outside Mulford Library on Health Science Campus.
The market will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting Wednesday, July 15, and will continue every other Wednesday through Oct. 21.
“By bringing the Toledo Farmers’ Market to UTMC, it’s convenient for our staff and students, and it makes it easier for them to make healthy food choices,” said Jocelyn Szymanski, wellness coordinator at Rocket Wellness.
Rocket Wellness also is providing an incentive for employees to visit the farmers’ market. UT employees can pick up a punch card that will get stamped for every $5 they spend.
When the card is completely filled, employees can bring it to the Rocket Wellness table to receive a free reusable tote bag and be entered into a raffle for a wellness basket.
