BALTIMORE - Baltimore officials are unveiling new signs to make it easier for consumers at city markets to identify healthy food options.
On Wednesday, officials will unveil new signs that will make it easier for customers to identify healthy food options when purchasing prepared foods at Lexington Market.
Eventually, officials hope to expand the strategy to more than 100 carryout vendors across Baltimore's six public markets, which are visited by more than 4.2 million customers annually.
It's part of the Get Fresh Public Markets initiative, which aims to increase the availability of healthy foods and local produce.
Officials also hope to increase demand through nutrition and fitness activities and coordinate existing health and educational resources in the public markets.
