Medica Healthy Savings Grows Farmers Market Program

Offers Members More Ways to Save on Fresh Produce

MINNEAPOLIS--()--Today Solutran announces that Medica members participating in the Healthy Savings program will now be able to receive up to $3 off a tray of produce at participating Farmers Markets this summer. The Healthy Savings Farmers Market promotions begin in mid-June and will run through October.

With over 2,000 pounds of produce purchased by members at more than 25 Farmers Markets last year, the Medica Healthy Savings program is excited to unite with area Farmers Markets to offer the unique benefit for the third consecutive season. The program started in 2013 with nine Farmers Markets and has grown to include over 30 markets, with many metro area markets participating and spreading as far north as Alexandria and as far south as Wabasha.

“Going to a Farmers Market is a great family experience. We are definitely seeing more and more Medica members around the market as a result of this program. We love the new customers and are pleased to help connect members with our local farmers,” said Audrey Lord, manager of the Annex Farmers Market in Downtown Minneapolis.

Each week, Medica members receive announcements on dates when participating Farmers Markets are offering the promotion. Members simply present their Healthy Savings card at the information booth to receive their $3 voucher that can be used towards any fresh produce purchase at the market. For more promotion details and a full list of participating markets members can visit the program website www.medica.com/healthysavings.
