Unity Health is a proud sponsor of this year's Farmers' Market in Searcy. In conjunction with its sponsorship, Unity Health assisted in coordinating the first ever Farmers' Market Family Day located on the Courthouse Square. The event featured local farmers, vendors, live music, farm animals and children's activities.
To improve the health and well-being of the communities it serves, Unity Health focuses on encouraging people to make health-centered choices.
"When I think about summer, the big thing I think about is all of the available fresh produce and how you can get it locally," says Unity Health Clinical Dietitian Karen Szelinski. "The farmers' market is a great option for fresh produce. It's local so it's fresher, tastes better and hasn't been trucked across the country so it leaves a lower carbon footprint. It's also a really good way to support the local economy on more of a grass-roots level and help support smaller farmers."
The Searcy Farmers' Market is open on the Courthouse Square in downtown Searcy on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon and on Tuesdays from 3-6 p.m.
