By bringing the farmers’ market to its campus, Jamaica Hospital hopes to provide an outlet where members of the community can obtain seasonal fruits and vegetables and improve their overall health.
Addressing diet-related illnesses and obesity in our community has always been one of our primary objectives at Jamaica Hospital. Our farmers’ market is one of several initiatives we have implemented to provide our population with resources needed to lead healthy lives..
Jamaica Hospital’s Farmers’ Market will offer produce from the Queens County Farm Museum. Members of the community can shop there every Thursday through November 14th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at 134-20 Jamaica Avenue, in front of the Axel Building.
One of the keys to maintain a healthy lifestyle is seeing your doctor for regular check-ups and to manage pre-existing conditions. To make an appointment with a doctor at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center’s Ambulatory Care Center, please call 718-206-7001.
