Market Walk and Talk

2018 Market Walk  Talk Flyer.png

Nutley Farmers Market Walk & Talk helps Market patrons get fit AND informed during their weekly visit to the Market.

Every Sunday during the Market season, walkers can join a featured leader for a 3-mile scenic loop. During the walk, participants can ask the leader questions within their area of expertise in a relaxed, informal setting. Walkers meet at the Nutley Farmers Market at 8:15am, step off at 8:30am, and return to the Market to stock up for the week ahead.

Market Walk & Talk leaders come from a wide variety of disciplines, including health, wellness, fitness, education, government, law, art, design, writing, and more.

Market Walk & Talk is funded in part by a grant to the Nutley Department of Health from Partners for Health Foundation whose mission is to make our communities healthier, better places to live.
