Edward Hines, Jr. VA Hospital
Hines Farmers’ Market Every Thursday
June 4, 2011
Fresh fruits and vegetables will be on the menu for many Hines veterans, employees and visitors every Thursday beginning June 16th and ending September 29th. The Hospital’s Farmers’ Market, open Thursdays between 7:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. in the campus North parking lots, is back for the fourth year in a row.
"We are thrilled to be able to support our local farmers, many of whom are veterans, and at the same time promote wise eating choices for our patients and employees," said Sharon Helman, Hines Hospital Director. "The Market makes fresh fruits and vegetables an easy option for all of us."
Each week the Farmers’ Market will feature different items, based on the availability of local produce and vendor response. The hospital will post the Farmers’ Market menus on the facility facebook page as well as at main entrances to the facility every Thursday morning. Hines is always open to including new vendors and items in our Market.
