Fresh Summer Produce

Are you ready to enjoy the bounty of summer fruits and vegetables?


If you are a local gardener and find yourself with more bounty than you can use from your homegrown fruits or vegetables this year; load up the extra and come take advantage of Christian County Health Department’s effort to encourage healthy eating habits in our area communities. Local produce stands will be set up in 8 different communities (see list of locations below) across Christian County to help make local produce more easily accessible and also to promote the benefits of eating a minimum of 5 fruit or vegetable servings per day as part of an overall healthy diet. A healthy lifestyle is important in preventing many adverse health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity and cancer along with many others.

If you are interested in selling your produce at one of our locations, just come during operating hours listed below and bring your produce. Canopies will be set up for you prior to the event with tables and chairs provided.

If you are a community member who would like to purchase homegrown produce in your area, this is an opportunity to enjoy the benefits of locally grown fruits and vegetables while meeting some of the “green thumbs” in your community. Growers will be on hand at our produce stands to answer any questions you may have concerning their produce. Eating a diet that includes fruits and vegetables provides nutrients vital for health and maintenance of your body.   Learn more

Produce stands will operate each Thursday evening in July from 5:00 pm — 7:00 pm. ¬†Feel free to stop in and join the excitement. If you have any questions about selling or buying from our Homegrown Produce Stands, just give us a call at 417-581-7285.
