It’s a win-win-win scenario. You get fresh, delicious produce, support local small businesses, and support the diabetes and clinical nutrition department at Bluewater Health. How can you say no?!

Okay, maybe you missed today’s market, but don’t worry! Bluewater Health holds a Farmers' Market at the end of every month, from 7:00am to 1:00pm. The next two dates are July 26th and August 30th. Hope to see you there! In the meantime, make sure to head over to the Foundation's Instagram to check out some more photos I took at today's Farmers' Market!
