August 11th Market News
Happy National Farmers' Market Week! Despite the rain, we're celebrating with a cooking demonstration and tasting from Healthy on Hudson. The proprietor, Julie Fischer, embarked on journey towards healthy living when she was diagnosed with MS. Now a health coach, Julie supports people in changing their diet and lifestyle to achieve optimal health and well-being. We came across Julie's page when she tagged pictures of meals she made with her weekly Market haul. Tomorrow she's whipping up an easy and delicious peach caprese salad. Stop by her tent to sample the salad and sign up for a free mini coaching session. MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
