Third Annual Produce Power Features Indoor Farmer’s Market

Features Cooking Demonstrations, Presentations, Activities

A healthy, balanced diet that includes fresh fruits and vegetables helps people maintain and lose weight, prevents many chronic illnesses and fights disease. Eating right can set the plate for a healthy life. That's why St. Mary's Janesville Hospital, Dean Clinic-Janesville East and Dean Health Plan are hosting our third annual Produce Power Garden Party.

This year we're making it even better by partnering with the Janesville Farmer's Market and Olde Towne Mall for an indoor farmer's market, cooking and gardening demonstrations, culinary fun for the kids, recipes, giveaways and more.

WHEN:   8 a.m. - 1 p.m., Saturday, April 5
WHERE: Olde Towne Mall, 20 S. Main St., Janesville

Free Cooking Lessons and Workshops

 Janesville Farmer’s Market

 Several local farms will be set up in the lower level of Olde Towne Mall to sell early spring produce and other products as well as educate people about Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs. Attendees will be able to purchase a CSA share from a local farm, which is a way to get fresh, in-season fruits and vegetables delivered weekly throughout the season at a fraction of the cost of buying from a grocery store.

Confirmed vendors include: Amazing Grace Family Farm, Scotch Hill Farm, Wright Way Farm, Frochy Community Farm, Christensen’s Farm, Wholesome Harvest CSA, Tracy’s Farm Bus and Roots Down Community Farm.
