Nutrition Information for Customers and Vendors

Eating healthy foods can help prevent, delay, and manage a number of diseases. Farmers markets are the perfect place for customers to source fresh, healthy, local foods! Our friends at the Alaska Cancer Partnership (DHSS) have compiled a one-page resource with some of the best resources you can utilize at the market to inform customers of the health benefits of fresh, local foods. Find printable resources for your vendor booths, videos on cooking techniques, and resources to keep children engaged with making healthy food choices here:

Healthy Eating = Cancer Prevention.
