FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 20, 2009
RE: Fresh Market at Armory Square to open May 5th
The Pioneering Healthy Communities Committee and Friends of the Armory are pleased to announce that starting May 5th and continuing through October 27, a new fresh market featuring locally grown fruits and vegetables and USDA approved homemade food products will be available for sale every Tuesday from 4 pm to 7 pm at Armory Square, 241 Front Street in historic downtown Marietta.
With the Armory restoration project in the architectural design phase and over $2 million grant funds secured, the site provides a high profile and high traffic location with over 4 million cars on Front Street annually. Fresh Market at Armory Square will provide an excellent opportunity for grower sales at a mid-week market, and great access to quality local produce for the community.
The market will be operated by WASCO which will provide employment opportunities for Washington County citizens with developmental disabilities.
Pioneering Healthy Communities is an initiative to encourage physical activities and healthy eating in Marietta and Washington County, and is funded by a special grant through the Marietta Family YMCA.
