Public Market Wellness Series 2018

18-Market Wellness web page header The City of Rochester Public Market is pleased to offer a Wellness Series in 2018! This series brings organizations and agencies in the community dedicated to health and wellness to the Market to provide a wide array of information, education and even free screenings.  Our Wellness Series special guests will be in very visible locations around the Market Office building (the two-story brick house) on busy Thursdays and Saturdays at the Market throughout the year!  Bookmark this page to keep track of the constantly updated Wellness Series schedule; and stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram, our Market Matters newsletter as well as to our on-site P.A. announcements, to know the current and coming Wellness Series offerings!

Note that on *every* Saturday over the summer, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., AMR Ambulance will be on site to provide any needed medical assistance, but also to provide free hands on CPR training.  This is a simple skill that can be learned in minutes--that can save a life.  See our friends from AMR Ambulance Saturdays just inside the Union Street gateway entrance to the Market.

If you are with or know of an organization that should be part of our series, get in touch: pmarket@cityofrochester.gov.
