Wednesday April 13th marked the the first weekly Farmer's Market on the VA Palo Alto Hospital Campus for 2011. The Farmer's Market is an annual marker of the warmer weather and wonderful fresh produce available in the surrounding CA area. Many WBRC students and staff members walked over to the campus Farmer's Market for opening day to browse the fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, potted plants, cut flowers, and honey available for sale. The Farmer's Market also hosts live music and even cooking demonstrations. WBRC students have a unique opportunity to walk over to the Farmer's Market and practice the skills they learn at the WBRC such as long cane use, visual scanning patterns, magnifier use, and money identification skills. The Farmer's Market will run every Wednesday from 10 AM - 2 PM starting April 13th until November 16th this year.
