Community Health Day at the Livingston Farmers Market

For this special event, Livingston HealthCare Pediatric Rehabilitation team members will have information on child development and a frog toss game. Livingston HealthCare’s Orthopedics team, including orthopedic surgeon Dr. Gregg Schellack, will provide information on total joint replacement and child summer safety tips. Certified Diabetes Educator, Chelsey Clark, will dispense bite-size healthy energy snacks by Café Fresh and information on healthy eating. Granite Sports Medicine will have a booth with a perfectly goofy Cornhole game where you can win GSM hats and T-shirts. Participants will be rewarded with handy-dandy little bottles of natural sunscreen. CHP and Park County Health Department will also have booths.

The farmers market is open from 4:30-7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays from May 31st through September 20th at Miles Band Shell Park, rain or shine. This week will feature Kate & the AlleyKats as the musical guests, so bring your dancing shoes.

Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons are now available at Western Sustainability Exchange’s booth between 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. until supplies run out. Seniors 60 and over who make under a certain amount can apply for these coupons, which allows them to get $50 worth of Montana-grown fruit, vegetables, herbs, and honey from participating vendors for free.

River Drive is now closed during the farmers market to provide safety for pedestrians and bicyclists, but the Civic Center parking lot is still open. This closure has allowed the market to expand across the road. Camel Discovery is bringing camels, and you can find booths that sell freshly popped kettle corn, jewelry, soap, and tie dye apparel on the grassy strip along the road in front of the lagoon. There's a free bike valet behind the stage to keep bikes safe and out of the way during the market. LINKs for Learning is doing it as a free service, but donations are always welcome.
