Commissioner Robert Patrick is pleased to announce that Pleasantdale Park was selected as one of multiple sites throughout DeKalb County that will be home to the Fresh on Dek, Farmers Market. The market provides guests with free pre-bagged fresh fruits and vegetables in communities where access to nutritious food options might be limited. The market rolls into Pleasantdale Park Wednesday, May 25th (5-7 pm) and runs through July 13th of this year. Each Wednesday at Pleasantdale Park, guests will be able to receive pre-bagged produce while supplies last. Additionally, those who attend will have access to healthy recipes and nutrition information.
Fresh on DeK, the DeKalb County Mobile Market, was created to educate residents living in communities designated as “food deserts” on the importance of healthy living and fresh, in-season produce. The program is able to bring education and fresh produce to food deserts around DeKalb County- by doing this we are aiming to create a healthier community in DeKalb!
Fresh on DeK is made possible with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, DeKalb County Government, DeKalb County Board of Health, and UGA Cooperative Extension.
