Hudson - The Hudson Farmers Market 10th season continues on Sept. 3 with its annual Wellness Day, presented by the Cleveland Clinic and Akron General. The event goes from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the Green in downtown Hudson.

One of the key goals of the Hudson Farmer's Market is to foster a healthy Hudson by offering healthy, locally raised or made fruits, vegetables, breads, cheeses and meats for Hudsonites. The Cleveland Clinic and Akron General do this too through preventive programs and medical treatments.

The Hudson Farmer's Market is inviting the Cleveland Clinic and Akron General to the Clock Tower Green to share health and wellness information with our patrons.

Among the activities this year will be a visit from the Health & Wellness Express -- a Cleveland Clinic Akron General mobile health unit -- providing health screenings on site.

The public can also visit the Cleveland Clinic Akron General tent to interact with friendly employees, including:
