Farmer’s market returns to health department Today

July 7, 2015 - 10:55 AM

In a continued effort to encourage local residents to eat better and provide access to locally produced fruits and vegetables, the Knox County Health Department will once again host a bi- monthly Farmer’s Market beginning today. The market will take place in the parking lot on the south side of the health department and is scheduled for the first and third Tuesday of the month, July through September, from 4 – 6:30 p.m.

In addition to local produce for sale, each market will feature food preparation demonstrations and related activities. Today's market will feature Executive Chef Paul Higgins who will present a demonstration titled “Grill On…” Higgins will show how to prepare various vegetables on the grill including zucchini, green beans and tomatoes.

The dates for other farmer’s markets at the health department and presentation topics are: July 21, Cooking with Kids; Aug. 4, ‘Lettuce’ Fill your Lunch Box with Chef Paul Higgins; Aug. 18, Canning Demonstration; Sept. 1, Kid's Gardening Activity with Master Gardeners from OSU-Extension, Knox County; and Sept. 15, Harvest Day with teacher Martha Melick and students from Mount Vernon High School.

Exhibitors at the health department market are the same growers that sell at the Saturday market on the Public Square in downtown Mount Vernon. The health department market is open to the general public and is held rain or shine. In the case of inclement weather, the food demonstration will be moved inside.

For more information on the farmer’s markets at the health department, contact Tami Ruhl at 740-392-2200, ext. 2274 or
