Improving health and well-being with local farmer’s market initiative

Thanks to the efforts of UF Health Pediatrics resident Christina Baxter Vernace, D.O., and her partners at UF Health, UF/IFAS and The Family Garden, a farmers market is now available outside the UF Health Pediatrics – Gerold L. Schiebler CMS Center.

On the third Wednesday of each month during the growing season, families and employees alike are now able to purchase fresh, organic, in-season produce and visit with an on-site nutritionist who helps educate shoppers on the importance of healthy eating.
