This week is Healthy Communities Day at Market!

This week we’re spotlighting some of the great organizations in our community that help us live healthier lives. Have you noticed that the Kitsap Public Health District comes to Market each and every week with info and tools to help you make great nutrition choices? KPHD is a strong supporter of our Market because fresh, local food is the first step toward good health.

This week’s other Healthy Community supporters include: Viva Flow Yoga, Bremerton Community Services Office (CSO), Kitsap Regional Library – with Violet the Bookmobile, Cyndislight Massage, the Alzheimer’s Association, Lindquist Dental, and Chef Monica Downen from Monica’s Waterfront Cafe & Bakery!

Market is full of ingredients to cook up a healthy feast! And to show you how, Chef Monica Downen will be giving 2 demonstrations as part of our CHEF AT THE MARKET program! Come watch the action at 5:00pm & 6:00pm – near the center of the market.

And don’t miss out on YOGA AT THE MARKET! For the very first time, we will have yoga at the farmers market, led by Viva Flow Yoga!  This session starts at 5:30pm, and Carla Lundgren, owner of Viva Flow, will be leading a 45 minute Fun “Farmers Market” Flow class in the park. No yoga experience necessary. Kiddos & doggies are welcome too! Bring a mat or a blanket and we will see you there! Oh yeah…and it’s FREE!!

Come to market and Thursday will be your favorite day of the week. See you there!
