Participant Stories: 

I visited the farmers' market for the first time.

Our programs give people a sense of community.

During the market season of 2022, produce prescription participants could visit Hendersonville and Mills River Farmers markets to select fruits and vegetables using vouchers.  Bringing people out to the farmers' market can increase social connectedness and access to healthy foods and provide an opportunities for families to be active.  One participant shared with us after their first family visit, 

"I had never gone to the farmers' market in Hendersonville before.  I loved it.  My little boy loved it.  He wants to go again next week.  He loved the strawberries."
