St. Vincent's Medical Center sets up farmers market to offer healthy foods

Posted: Updated:

St. Vincent's Medical Center is known for its health care, but once a week, it's all about healthy foods.

The St. Vincent's Farm Stand sets up shop every Tuesday in front of the hospital's main entrance.

It's part of the Bridgeport Farmers Market Collaborative, and features fresh fruits and vegetables.

There was a cooking demo Tuesday, which showed people how to use local produce to create a healthy meal.

The St. Vincent's Farm Stand is open every Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. until the end of October.

There are cooking demonstrations at each of the eight farmers markets in Bridgeport once a month.
