Market vendors get shelter form the storm

Written by 

The Haywood County Health Department pitched in and gave away tents, tables, coolers and other equipment to vendors at area farmer’s markets last week, including Haywood’s Historic Farmers Market. The equipment was purchased through a Community Transformation Grant Project, which focuses on addressing disease in the state through tobacco-free living, exercise and eating healthy.   

Keelin Schneider, the Health Promotions coordinator, was on site last Wednesday’s to help deliver the equipment to individual vendors who had applied and to market representatives. 

“This generous contribution by Haywood County, supporting healthy lifestyles through local markets, is a refreshing boost for producers who are challenged by economic issues and weather,” Schneider said.

Haywood’s Historic Farmers Market is held on Wednesday and Saturday mornings from 8 a.m. until noon in the Shelton House parking lot in Waynesville.
