ABOUT THE YOGA SESSION Boundless Health will offer a free slow flow yoga class incorporating breath-linked movement to bring mindfulness to the practice. The class will use Vinyasa yoga sequences to guide participants through various shapes, building strength and flexibility. Movement, breath work, and meditation will be offered during this practice to bring awareness and balance to the body and mind.
The instructor, Kendra Hill, is a clinical social worker by training that found yoga about 10 years ago. With interests in mental health and exercise, Kendra is intrigued by the connection between physical and mental well-being, and using movement to help individuals gain self-awareness.
ABOUT BOUNDLESS HEALTH Boundless Health is a new health care center offering doctor visits, dental care, and mental health care all at one convenient location for people of all ages and abilities. Our beautiful Worthington campus surrounded by a park-like area adds to the sensory-friendly experience!

Need Cash? Buy Tokens!
Small, local producers working on thin margins sometimes forego credit cards to avoid the fees. If you don’t have cash, head to the Information Booth where can buy $5 wood tokens with a credit or debit card. All the vendors take them, they give change back in cash, and the tokens never expire. There is a $1 dollar transaction fee, regardless the amount.
SNAP/EBT Customers: use your Ohio Direction or Ohio P-EBT card to earn FREE Produce Perks to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables and food-bearing plants!

Please be prepared with cash or Market tokens (not SNAP/EBT tokens) as these are the only forms of payment that Darryl accepts. Sales begin with the opening bell at 8am.

We will have a limited supply of masks available at the Market information desk (located at the corner of S. High Street & New England Avenue in front of the Graeter's Ice Cream and House Wine parking lot), should you wish to wear one while visiting the Market.
We will continue with our other proactive measures to help reduce the spread of illness including having hand sanitizer available throughout the Market and increased spacing between producer booths.
If you have a fever or are feeling ill, we ask that you please stay home.
