-Farmers Market Walking Program

We’re ROOTing for fitness!

Farmacy Fit is FREE and open to the public. Show up to your farmers market, the earlier the better. Check in at the Welcome Booth and they’ll get you started on your one-mile route. Enjoy your walk at your own pace. For those who can’t walk, we have exercise bands for chair-based fitness!

Upon completion of your walk, everyone receives $3 tokens that you can exchange for fresh fruits and vegetables from any market vendor.

We encourage you to spend your tokens the same day.
