Harvest Market at Owensboro Health

We invite you to visit the Harvest Market, a joint venture between Owensboro Health and the Owensboro Regional Farmers' Market. The Harvest Market will visit the Pleasant Valley Campus every Tuesday through Sept. 2nd from 1:30 - 5:00 p.m. 

The Harvest Market is also an opportunity to learn and grow as a person and a consumer. It’s a place to not just find familiar food items, but to learn about and try new foods that offer whole new adventures. That’s why we’re also bringing experts to the Harvest Market, giving them a chance to teach and demonstrate.

Owensboro Health’s mission is to heal the sick and to improve the health of the communities we serve. Healing the sick is only part of our mission, and that’s why we’re working to improve health for everyone in the years to come. To that end, we’re helping people learn how to eat, exercise and live well. The Harvest Market is an example of this effort.
