On Wednesday mornings, the atrium in the North Carolina Children’s Hospital is transformed into a pop-up farmers market.

“It’s impossible not to notice you’re in a hospital, but the market doesn’t feel out of place,” said Reginald Savage of Azurelise Chocolate Truffles in Raleigh.

The UNC Wellness Market runs from May through September and is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Wednesday.

Though the program began as an employee initiative, Elizabeth Churchill, the administrative coordinator of outpatient care services and director of the Wellness Farm, wants all UNC students and faculty to feel welcome at the market.

“Students want to stay healthy too, and this is just a short walk or bus ride away from their dorms,” Churchill said. “Students can pick up a basket of peaches and snack off that all week.”
