Fresh Rolls into its 5th Season to Promote Healthy Lifestyles

The Fulton Fresh Mobile Farmer’s Market program kicked off the 2015 season by providing fresh produce and nutrition education to over 200 participants who attended the opening ceremony. Information about Cooperative Extension and other county services was made available to participants. Healthy treats and fresh produce were the highlights of the day.

The Fulton Fresh Mobile Farmer’s Market was created to help combat disparities within the Fulton County communities where residents are living in areas that are considered “food deserts.” The program offers nutrition education and recipes on how to prepare tasty and healthy meals with the fresh produce they receive.
