Rain or Shine….Healthy Markets is here in Glen Burnie, MD with fresh, local farmer’s produce and meats!

Growing a new farmer’s market has its challenges! But come Rain or Shine, Healthy Markets is here in Anne Arundel County Maryland to serve you! Healthy Markets, with its partner the Baltimore Washington Medical Center, opened this Spring, in May 2012 with the idea of bringing “Healthy Foods and a Healthier Lifestyle Closer to you!” And that is just what we have done!!! Customer feedback has been great! And, although the rains last weekend put a “damper” on things…..our customers came out to support us! Many who stopped by were excited that a Farmer’s Market has come to the Glen Burnie area and mentioned that prior to the opening of Healthy Markets Farmer’s Market, the closest fresh farm produce and meats were a long drive away in Annapolis!!

We at Healthy Markets appreciate your support and are working hard to make our market better! Our next market date will be Saturday, August 4, 2012 and also in August we plan to go to a weekly market schedule! Yes, our fresh farm eggs, meats, vegetables, fruits and herbs will be available on a weekly basis! At our current location we are moving closer to the street to increase our visability and we are planning to add several value added producers with handmade items including soaps, jewelry and other things!

The Farmers’ Market season is not over yet! Stop by Healthy Markets @BWMC in August to see our changes and get locally produced fresh produce, meats and value added items in your neighborhood!  Check our blog often for upcoming events and follow us on Twitter for updates! See you in August!

Sincerely,

Take Our Health & Fitness Quiz


Farmers’ Markets are a great place to get nutritious healthy foods! Did you know that MyPyramid, the USDA’s food nutrition guide has been changed? Who knew! MyPyramid is now MyPlate Food Pyramid! These new guidelines were released June 2011!  In 2005, MyPyramid, replaced the nutrition guidance followed under the 1992 standards of the Food Pyramid.  The USDA says that “MyPlate is designed to remind Americans to eat healthfully; it is not intended to change consumer behavior alone.  My Plate illustrates the five food groups using a familiar mealtime visual, a place setting.” There is even a “MyPyramid” for preschoolers and kids!

For MyPlate/MyPyramid Resources go to the USDA website. There you will find a food tracker, menu planner and other resources and information!  For more information about what goes on a healthy plate, go to ChooseMyPlate.gov Stay healthy and don’t forget to click on the “Take Our Health & Fitness Quiz” button above to take our Quiz!
