Last week, we celebrated all things Health & Wellness thanks to some excellent groups and activities in our special tents. Dietetics Interns from IUP's Department of Food & Nutrition occupied two of our tents and provided information about fermented and probiotic-rich foods, samples of a yummy mango yogurt smoothie, and fun with food science making watermelon treats for the kids. John Baker cooked up nutritious and tasty samples, and Gatti Pharmacy shared information about their services and new location, along with cool color-changing cups.
Our featured vendor this week is Healthy Harvest Gardener. You surely have noticed Michael's bright green wheatgrass ready for juicing fresh on the spot, along with wild foraged mushrooms, gourmet garlic, and a variety of other produce. Stop in and try something new!
