The Public Market Nutrition Education Center, located inside Shed B, is designed to host a variety of community nutrition and culinary programs. As part of today’s ribbon cutting, the Mayor was joined by City Council member and Foodlink’s Chief Programs Officer Mitch Gruber, Wegmans Community Relations Manager Linda Lovejoy and other friends and supporters of the Public Market.“Healthy eating is at the root of a healthy community, and there’s no better place to inspire healthy eating than at our popular Public Market with all its fresh, local foods,” said Mayor Lovely Warren.
Foodlink educators, already a mainstay of nutrition programs and food sampling at the Market, will be offering free Just Say Yes to Fruits and Vegetables workshops every Thursday and Saturday mornings at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. at the kitchen.
