Farmers Market returns to Putnam Hospital Center this summer

Posted: 5/23/2019

The Putnam Hospital Center Farmers Market returns this year on June 6, offering a bigger selection of fresh, affordable produce to the community.

The seasonal market is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Thursday through October on the hospital campus. The market is located around the flagpole near the front entrance to the hospital.

Six local vendors will sell a bounty of fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, breads, eggs, truffle products, home baked goods and handmade soaps. Vendors include Do Re Me Farms, West Cork Farm, General Cochran Farm, Sharamel, Nelson Truffles and Mind, Body & Bath.

“We are so pleased to bring fresh produce and specialty items from the region’s local farms to our community,” Putnam Hospital Center President Peter Kelly said. “This is a wonderful opportunity for the residents of Putnam County and beyond to visit our campus and have access to wholesome and nutritious food.”

The farmers market, one of only a handful in Putnam County, is meant to encourage healthy eating habits and the prevention of chronic diseases. The farmers market will offer nutritional tips, recipes and demonstrations throughout the season.
