An initiative of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the City of Melrose and Town of Wakefield Health Departments, the Mass in Motion Healthy Market Program works with local convenience store owners to make healthy food and drink options more readily available. By promoting healthy options, the local markets are helping to make healthy choices easier for families.
Store manager Nasrul Huq has been working with Kara Showers, Mass in Motion-Melrose/Wakefield program coordinator, to stock fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy cereals and grains, healthy beverages and healthy snacks.
Please patronize Bob’s Market at 163 West Wyoming Avenue. One can find grab-and-go items such as fresh fruit and baked chips, as well as dried beans and whole grain cereals. Stop by to browse these selections and much more.
Bob’s Market joins West Wyoming Market, Melrose Shell and Common Market as the fourth Healthy Corner Store in Melrose.
If you are interested in becoming a Healthy Corner Store in Melrose or Wakefield please contact Kara Showers at 781-979-4123 or email@example.com.
