Visit to the Nashville Mobile Market at Napier

Inside the Market at Napier
We had the privilege today to visit the Nashville Mobile Market sponsored by Vanderbilt University. It was an great time!  The Mobile Market is, as it states, a small grocery store on wheels.  They had all kinds of healthy foods to choose from like bananas, apples, pears, spinach, sweet potatoes, and whole grains.  The purpose and mission of the mobile market is to provide access to wholesome foods in areas that do not have other affordable grocery stores.  They have multiple stops throughout the week and or favorite is the new one because it is only about mile from our front door of the clinic.

The Best Kids in Nashville!!!
The Market has started a very creative way to get kids to eat healthy and keep their grades up too.  For every A a child receives on his/her report card, they get a piece of fruit.  If I know the kids at Napier, the Mobile Market better buy some more fruit!

The Clinic at Mercury Courts will also be coming to the Market on Wednesdays from 2:30-4:30pm to provide blood pressure screenings and help answer any nutritional questions any of our friends in the community might have (particularly when the weather starts getting warm). So, bring a sack for all of your good food, a pen a pencil to take notes, and a your appetite for nutritious food, but most importantly, be ready for a great time!

One last announcement, The Clinic at Mercury Courts is now "on-line" Come and take a peek at our Facebook page at Our Facebook Page (<--Click Here) We will be using this site to communicate clinic news and updates as well as health news throughout the day.  Don't forget to "Like".  You can also follow us on twitter at  Follow @MercuryClinic.
