Mini farmers market at Latino celebration

Open Door Clinic putting on event Sunday in Smith River

Local health advocates hope Smith River’s Latino community comes out for a celebration Sunday geared toward getting folks to incorporate more fresh foods in their diet.

The event will include a mini farmers market offering for purchase local organic vegetables, something that has been difficult for many residents in Smith River to do since the community’s only supermarket closed two years ago.

“There are no vegetables in this town,” said David Brambila, owner of La Joya Market, who is providing the venue for the Latino Health Awareness Month celebration. “Nobody sells fruits or vegetables. Everybody needs to go to Crescent City or Brookings and some don’t have cars to drive.”
