How to Experience a Mega Farmers Market in Bristol on Oct 24

As the 2020 season of the Bristol Farmers Market comes to a close, the popular event is going out with a bang.

The City of Bristol announced that Trash-to-Treasure will be back at the Farmers Market this Saturday, October 24 and will be located in the empty parking lot off of Hope Street, south of the Farmers Market. The popular Trash-to-Treasure program offers unwanted and gently used furniture items recovered from the Bristol Transfer Station. Items will be available free to the public on Saturday from 10 am until 1 pm. All items must be picked up between 10 am and 1 pm on Saturday, October 24.

October 24, 2020 is also National Prescription Drug Take Back Day which aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the public about the potential for abuse of medications. The Bristol Police Department in partnership with the B.E.S.T. coalition will be in attendance for ‘Drug Take Back Day’ and will be collecting unused prescription drugs.

This is an opportunity for members of the public to properly dispose of prescription drugs or vaping products (batteries removed) which are no longer needed, wanted, or expired.

In addition, the Bristol Police Youth Cadets will have a table at the Bristol Farmers Market to sell raffle calendars for the month of November to help raise money and bring awareness to and for Stations Day, High Stress Day, the Cadet Police Academy, and to fund the Youth Cadet’s CPR Training. Please support them by purchasing a raffle on October 24.

Bristol Health will also have a booth to promote Breast Cancer Awareness month and the importance of early detection through mammograms and yearly exams with their health providers. Attending will be Bristol Health’s Breast Nurse Navigator/Program Coordinator, Rachael Marlin, and Dr. Elizabeth Brady, the new Medical Director and Breast Surgeon of the Beekley Center for Breast Health and Wellness. Nurse Navigator of the Cancer Care Center, Robyn Rakowski and Jeannie Robbins, MSN, RN, NE-BC, RN-BC, Clinical Service Line Director for the Bristol Health Cancer Care Center will be providing educational information and materials to the community.

This will give the community an opportunity to meet Dr. Brady, receive education, and increase awareness. Kathy Cruz, a Patient Access Representative from the Cancer Care Center will be donating free chocolate dipped strawberries and pretzels to the public, compliments of Dipped by Kat. 

Ray’s CARSTAR is supplying a Pink Buggy that will be on site for visitors to view and sign the car to support “Pinktober” at Bristol Health! The cost is $5.00 per signature and the donations will go directly to the Beekley Center for Breast Health and Wellness. The Beekley Fund offers comfort care services for our patients, free mammograms, massage therapy, survivorship events and more.
