Walk and Earn Tokens to Spend at the Farmers’ Market
Prove you walked and/or exercised to receive $5 to spend at the farmers market!
earn a $5 token to shop with at the farmers’ market.
The goal of the Tiffin Seneca Farmers’ Market is to make living a healthy lifestyle more accessible to everyone. The market bank has allowed individuals from all socioeconomic backgrounds to enjoy the market and now we have added a $5 token for walking!
Some kind of exercise is better than no exercise. When we say "Eat right", that means to add fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet.
So we want to encourage you to start, or continue exercising. The Seneca News Daily has offered to donate a $5 token to those who have been working towards a healthier lifestyle!
There are tons of free apps that you can get on your phone that track your steps or exercise. I use the fitbit app that goes along with my watch/tracker. It is free. Get one of those apps put on your phone. If you go to a gym and exercise, that works also.
This Saturday, be one of the first 60 people to stop by the "Farmers Market Bank". Show us on your phone, that you have done one of these things, THIS WEEK. Any one, not all of them:
Walk at least 10,000 steps in a day
Exercised for 30 minutes straight
Walk at least 40,000 steps total this week.
If you go to a gym, take a picture of you at the gym, and we'll accept that.
Exercise to Get $5 in Market Cash
Come to the market bank in the parking lot near Simply Susans to receive your token!
This plan will help you with both, exercising and eating better. There is plenty of good weather left this year. Get outside and get moving, and we'll reward you for it.
Thank you to the Sutton Bank for sponsoring the Tiffin Seneca Farmers Market.
