URMC / Food and Nutrition Services / Eating Tip of the Month

Eat Local

Eat Local in July.

Take advantage of locally grown produce this month as more foods become available right in our own neighborhoods. Whether you are a part of a CSA, visit a farmers’ market or choose the local options at Wegmans, buying locally grown foods is a great way to support the community and benefit from the freshest choices. The UR Farmers Market at the Medical Center makes it easy to peruse local vendors’ options after the work day. The market is open each Wednesday through October 26th in Flaum Atrium from 3:00-6:00pm.
