10/11/2020 - Don't Miss the Big CalaverasGROWN Farmers' Market Today in Murphys
Murphys, CA...CalaverasGROWN Certified Farmers' Market, Sunday, in Murphys Community Park from 9AM to 1PM 🍒 🐝 💕 $2 in Market Bucks to the first 100 shoppers who stop by the information booth! Though the rain may have missed us, cooler temps have us indoors more and enjoying our creature comforts. Whether you're vegan, a vegetarian, carnivore or something in between, there's nothing better than a stew simmering on the stove or veggies grilling to make us feel all is right with the world. Much of the seasonal produce needed for your fall recipes or a bit of inspiration can be found at our market. Add a freshly baked bread or delicious dessert and you'll have everything necessary to create a memorable meal for family and friends.

There’s also something very special about knowing the people themselves who help put food on your table. And shopping outdoors in the fresh air is joyful, uplifting and healthy. Feel good knowing you are buying directly from the grower or producer, so your food has traveled fewer miles and been handled fewer times than grocery store items.

We welcome SNAP EBT customers with Market Match so your dollars go twice as far. Ask also about CalaverasGROWN's regional currency ✨Mother Lode Gold ✨ which stretches your money 10% further.

100% of the money you spend at farmers' markets goes directly to the farmer, helping their small business thrive and strengthening the local economy. Thank you for shopping local. Our governor has declared that farmers' markets are essential and we follow COVID guidelines.

ps – Our online “mobile market” will remain open throughout the year with many of the same local vendors you’ve come to know and appreciate. Visit or our Facebook site for more information.

10/29/2020 - “Stepping Up!” for Women’s Health Mark Twain Medical Center Online Workshop Oct. 29
San Andreas, CA... The Stepping Up! for Women’s Health virtual workshop will be held via Zoom at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29. It is easy to register through the MTMC Webpage. Mark Twain Medical Center (MTMC) is bringing together local physical and mental health experts for a unique, online workshop to discuss women’s issues, available local services and resources which should not be overlooked during the pandemic.

MTMC President and CEO Doug Archer notes, “It’s important not to overlook significant, everyday health issues as we continue navigating pandemic impacts and challenges. This workshop is presented with that in mind – focusing on key elements of women’s physical AND mental health. We believe that everyone has a woman in their life that could benefit from what we will learn and share with each other during this special one hour online event. ”

He adds, “October is probably best known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month – a movement MTMC has actively supported for decades. Tina Macuha, anchor of Good Day Sacramento on KMAX/CW-31, continues to be engaged in our efforts to raise awareness in the foothill region and will make a special appearance during this workshop. She was set to headline our Steps to Kick Cancer event again this year but it has been canceled due to COVID-19.”

Archer explains, “October is also recognized nationally as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We know this threat is ongoing – and now, increasing – due to struggles and stress associated with the pandemic. This prompted us to include our local expert partners in covering this very important topic in our workshop.”

Kelli Coane, Chief Administrative Director of the Resource Connection, will lead that discussion about Empowering Individuals Seeking Freedom from Toxic Relationships. She will also offer a virtual tour of their facilities in both San Andreas and Murphys.

Other presenters include Gynecologist Ali Parsa, M.D.; Radiologist Pardeep Athwal, M.D.; and Debbie Sellick, Mark Twain Health Care District Board Member. They will cover a variety of health topics –
Routine Wellness and Reproductive Health
Minimally Invasive GYNO Surgeries
Breast Cancer Awareness
Mammograms: Not Scary Any More

This virtual event will be hosted by MTMC Community Board Chair Kathy Northington, retired Calaveras County School Superintendent; and Co-hosted by Doug Archer, CEO and President of MTMC. Workshop participants must register in advance through the MTMC Webpage and will receive a return email with instructions for joining the Zoom session.
