During the summer of 2011, Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton is hosting a Farmers' Market every other Thursday in the Tanner Café from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The farmers' markets are open to Tanner employees, volunteers, medical staff and the public. In September, the Farmers' Market will be open on Sept. 1, Sept. 15 and Sept. 29.
All vendors are independent and live in Carroll or an adjacent county, and each vendor's products are produced by the vendor. Cash and personal checks are accepted by all vendors. Those with an asterisk (*) accept debit cards and/or credit cards.
Buying locally reduces the amount of energy required to transport your products to the store, and you can’t buy or eat more locally than this. Don't forget to bring your own reusable shopping tote!
The Farmers' Market is part of the Tanner Green initiative. For more information on Tanner Green or the Farmers' Market, call 770.836.9202.
