Great news for Kaiser Permanente Farmers Markets!

What could be better news than having the strong support of Kaiser Permanente in providing and ensuring Farmers Market growth in many of their own facilities. 

 “We recognize that locally grown food from family farms is less taxing on the environment and ultimately healthier for those who grow and eat the food,” said Jan Villarante, Kaiser Permanente’s director of national nutrition. “And, we’ve seen overwhelming evidence that when people have access to farmers markets, they will take advantage of the market produce and increase their consumption of fruits and vegetables.”
