Capital Health will open its first farmers’ market on Friday, June 12 from 10am to 2pm.
The “Partners for Care Farmers’ Market at the QEII” will operate each Friday from June 12 to October 9, rain or shine. The “Terrace” and lawn area of the VG, in front of the Centennial Building, will be the place to be on Fridays.
Partners for Care is a charitable organization dedicated to generating revenue through business initiatives to benefit patients of Capital Health. Partners for Care is proud to do its’ part in supporting Capital Health’s commitment to creating “Healthier Communities”.
One goal of this market is educating, the vendors/producers are very proud and knowledgeable about their product and love to share the benefits. The Capital Health community can learn “How to eat healthier, one Friday at a time.”
The market will allow Capital Health staff, visitors and the surrounding community an opportunity to buy fresh and healthy produce, meat, fish and many other items on site, while supporting local vendors/producers.
Farmers’ Markets Nova Scotia is a strong supporter of this market and has been very helpful in assisting Partners for Care to locate and book the vendors/producers. The vendors/ producers are also available at other markets throughout the province on other days. We hope that this market will encourage Capital Health staff and visitors to visit the markets in their home area.
A food donation box will be available onsite each week for donations to Feed Nova Scotia.
Capital Health staff and neighbours are encouraged to bring their reusable bags with them.
