1 Health Department farmers market coming
The Stratford Health Department will again host a farmers market on Paradise Green this year. It will be open on Mondays from 2 to 6 p. m. beginning on June 18.
The market operates every Monday until the end of October, rain or shine. As in previous years, Connecticut- grown produce, local meats, shellfish, cheeses, baked goods, and crafts will be on sale. Paradise Green is at the intersection of Huntington Road and Main Street.
“Encouraging residents to consume plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables daily, in addition to regular exercise, continues to be a major goal for the Stratford Health Department,” said Greta Broneill, assistant director of health.
The Health Department is part of a coalition called Get Healthy CT, which aims to decrease obesity and increase physical activity. For more information and healthy tips, visit www. gethealthyct.org.
