GARY | In conducting a Community Health Needs Assessment, Methodist Hospitals identified one of the issues as the lack of fresh fruit and vegetables available at affordable prices. As a result, Methodist Hospitals Food Services Department is offering a series of Farmers Market and Food Fairs to promote nutrition and enhance the availability of fresh produce to the Gary and surrounding communities. The Farmers Market will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays, July 31, Aug. 14 and 28, at the Northlake Campus parking lot directly across from the Administration Building and next to McDonalds. Look for the big white tent and the market signs. Fresh fruits and vegetables will be available at wholesale prices, in addition to cooking demonstrations by hospital chefs.
