Rowan Regional weekly farmers market begins today

Rowan Regional Medical Center says it will begin hosting a weekly farmers market, with the first scheduled for today from 4 p.m. until dusk.
The “Healthy Harvest Farmers Market” will be a weekly event, the hospital said in a press release.
Featuring produce and goods grown by each individual seller, the market will enable residents of Rowan County to support local farmers.
The Staff Engagement Committee at Rowan Regional, led by Rick Parker, senior director of professional and support services, planned this event to encourage healthy eating among employees.
“This farmers market will give our employees the opportunity to purchase healthy food and give back to the farmers in our community,” Parker said.
The farmers market will feature produce, meats, eggs, baked goods, dairy products, fresh-cut flowers and more (depending on availability) grown by area farmers. Members of the community, as well as patients, employees and visitors of the hospital are invited to attend.
Salisbury Mayor Susan Kluttz said she “applauds Rowan Regional Medical Center for its efforts in this farmers market and the contribution to promote healthy eating and support of the local farmers. Offering this farmers market in the late afternoon is an enhancement to our community because it allows the farmers and those who work during the day a chance to participate.”
The market will be held in Rowan Regional’s Parking Lot A, located between Mocksville and Highland avenues. The market will be held every Thursday beginning from 4 p.m. until dusk.
Organizers ask patrons to bring their own recyclable grocery bag, if possible, to reduce the amount of paper and plastic goods used.
