Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System Certified Farmers’ Market

Fresh, Local, Affordable!

Open seasonally from Mid-May to October

Fridays – 1:30pm to 5:30pm – 450 East Romie Lane, Salinas, CA

The Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System (SVMHS) is at the corner of Wilgart Way and East Romie Lane in Salinas.

 

SVMH Market offers a wide array fresh fruits and vegetables from small-scale family farmers (many certified organic), along with prepared food.

The SVMH Market also runs the Fresh Produce Prescription Program. This innovative partnership between healthcare providers and farmers’ markets focuses on preventive health care to fight the rise of chronic diseases related to diet and body weight. Doctors “prescribe” fresh fruits and vegetables to young overweight patients and direct them to the farmers’ markets where they can receive $25 worth of fresh produce weekly. Results tracked by the doctors show healthy decreases in participants’ overall body mass index and other positive health indicators.
