This fall, we look forward to presenting a talented group of local alternative health care professionals and health & fitness groups who are passionate about educating local community members on how their services can help people live healthier lives. Since the focus of this event is on education and services, each booth will offer an interactive component such as a demonstration, a one-on-one mini consult or a personal evaluation. The event will also feature a cookout made with organic ingredients, samples from some of our health conscious local vendors and some children's activities hosted by Prairie Hill Waldorf School. Check back later for more information about practitioners who will be participating in the fair! The health fair will take place at Good Harvest Market's new location: 2205 Silvernail Road, Pewaukee (1/4 mile west of Hwy T/Grandview).
