Snow Hill, MD – Gardeners are still harvesting many fresh vegetables, such as broccoli, collard greens, spinach, squash, peppers, and kale. Consider taking advantage of the many farmers’ markets in Worcester County that are still providing fresh produce for our tables that not only tastes good but helps keep us healthy.
This October, as part of the Farm to Library Project, Worcester Health’s licensed and certified nutritionist will hold cooking demonstrations for community members with dishes made from fresh, local produce at local libraries and farmers’ markets including:
- Pocomoke Library, October 5, 2022 (4:00 - 6:00pm)
- Ocean Pines Farmers Market, October 8, 2022 (9:00 - 11:00am)
- Snow Hill Library, October 19, 2022 (4:00 - 6:00pm)
“Eating locally grown food is the best way to get healthy, in-season fruits and vegetables on your family's table. Plus, when you buy from local farmers or volunteer in community gardens, you're supporting your community. It's a win-win for everyone,” said Kelly Williams, Nutritionist for Worcester County Health Department.
The Worcester County Health Department is also providing free health screenings, including weight and body composition, blood pressure, Pre-Diabetes Risk Test, and general health education at each event.
These events are free. For more information, please call 410-632-1100 option 5.
