The Market has been designated as the first “Healthy Market” not only in Plymouth, but in the entire South Shore region, and the launch event included multiple speakers, a ribbon cutting, tours, sampling stations, and meet-and-greets.
When shoppers come to The Market at The Pinehills they will find special “Healthy Market” signage placed adjacent to products throughout the store helping them find healthy, nutritional options. In addition, Jordan Hospital is working with Chef Dane to have nutritional information available and on display for a weekly rotation of selected prepared foods, outlining calories, fat content, protein and sodium content per serving.
“We are honored to be chosen as the first Healthy Market in Plymouth,” said Sue Blackington- Harris, General Manager for The Market. “It is our goal to serve as the community’s go-to market for healthy, nutritious food in a convenient and welcoming setting. We are thrilled to work with Jordan Hospital on this important initiative.”
The launch also included comments from:
Peter Holden – President, Jordan Hospital
Cheryl Bartlett – Commissioner of Public Health, State of Massachusetts
Matt Muratore – Chair, Plymouth Board of Selectmen
Sue Blackington-Harris – General Manager, The Market at The Pinehills
The Market is located at:
