For a $10 donation you can get up to 60 lbs of fresh produce for yourself. You may now be wondering what you are going to do with 60 lbs of vegetables! Many people share them with family, friends, and neighbors. Many fresh vegetables can be canned or frozen to be used later helping families save money and eat healthier. If you really have no desire to get 60 lbs you can take less, though. The donation is still $10 either way.
We at Fitness Revolution wanted to bring MOM to San Tan Valley knowing that we are all wanting more options available to us out here as far as shopping and food choices are concerned. We are just as passionate about nutrition as we are fitness so having a “farmer's market” in our community that is convenient and affordable seemed to make perfect sense. We had a great turnout to our first event on March 10th and hope to have even more people come out on April the 14th.
The bonus of MOM is that at each event we host we get to choose a non-profit to receive 10% of all donations we receive that day. Last month we were able to give just under $600 to Christ the Victor Food Bank and this month we are sponsoring Helping Hands Food Pantry which is operated by Solid Foundation Bible Church right here in San Tan Valley.
Here is what to expect when you go: The event officially starts at 8 a.m. and lasts until noon. There may be a line so be prepared to wait for about 15 minutes or so. Once you get up to the front of the line you'll be asked to sign in and make your donation. You'll then be given boxes to load up with produce we will have put out on tables. You get to go along the tables and pick and choose what you want. If you need help carrying your boxes back to your car we can do that too. If you are on Facebook and you'd like to keep up with us and our future events please join our group 'Market on the Move hosted by Fitness Revolution'. While at the event please feel free to sign in with Fitness Revolution as well to get a 50% off membership coupon!
WHERE: Market on the Move will be held at Fitness Revolution, which is located at 2769 E. Combs Rd, San Tan Valley, AZ 85140. It is on the south side of Combs between Kenworthy & Schnepf, next to the Napa
