A continued partnership among the Local Food Alliance, Wood River Community YMCA and Wood River Farmers’ Market provides a healthy incentive to purchase fresh nutritious locally grown food.
Through Oct. 9, shoppers who purchase $15 or more of unprepared food at the Ketchum or Hailey Farmers’ Markets will be rewarded with a free day pass (or additional guest pass for members) to the Wood River YMCA. Vouchers can be picked up at the red Farmers’ Market tents with proof of purchase and redeemed at the YMCA within one year.
The vouchers are valued at $6 for youths (age 18 and under) and $15 for adults—the price of a day pass to the YMCA.
The Wood River Farmers’ Market operates Tuesdays in Ketchum Town Square (East Avenue and Fourth Street) and Thursdays in Hailey (grassy lot north of Sturtevants off Main Street and across the street from Sun Valley Brewery) through Oct. 13. Market hours are 2-6 p.m.
“The Farmers’ Market and the YMCA go together like good food and exercise—the age-old recipe for health and well-being,” said Ali Long, director of the Local Food Alliance. “It’s a triple win for farmers, shoppers and the Y.”
