LANCASTER – Sunday will be Wellness Day at Lancaster East Side Market. The Market, which is held Sundays in Musser Park, promotes wellness and community.
Each week a different theme is featured and this coming Sunday – 10 July – will be Wellness Day. Sarah McGahran, RYT (Registered Yoga Trainer) in Training, will host Yoga in the Park at 11 a.m.
Jah Volcano will provide music during the market. Bricker’s Famous French Fries and Bountiful Feast are the featured food trucks. Vendors will include regulars like Horseshoe Ranch and BeeBee’s All Naturals and Fresh Starts Nursery.
The Horseshoe Ranch, which is located in Willow Street, brings to market fresh veggies from their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm. I first met Brittany and Brian at the Herbal Faire at Landis Valley back in May of this year. I was very impressed with the young couple and their enthusiasm. The produce is organically grown and their seeds are non-GMO!
BeeBee’s All Naturals offers candies and skin care products. Skin care products include lotions, lip balm, hand cream and face moisturizer. Lori’s candies are delicious as well. Did you know that having local honey (try it on your morning toast) actually helps reduce pollen related allergies?
Fresh Starts Nursery sells organic veggie plants at the Market. While specific selections can change depending on sales and availability, they generally offer tomatoes, eggplants and cucumbers. We went the first week of Market and bought some Cherokee Purple Heirloom Tomatoes and some Cherry Tomatoes (I think they were the Sungold ones). Our little plants are doing well and, best of all, the whole family got excited about growing our own veggies!
