Healthy Living Festival Preview: Juice, Biking, Ice Pops & More
There’s no one way to live a healthy lifestyle and that’s why Columbus Underground is bringing back the Healthy Living Festival for the third year! You can explore tons of local businesses focused on wellness, all in one place. This year, we’re getting out of the city and getting outside at Jorgensen Farms on July 22. Guests of the event will get to spend the day exploring the beautiful property, tasting local healthy fare, chatting with artists and makers, snapping countless photo ops and enjoying free outdoor fitness classes. We’re so excited about the line-up of 30 plus vendors, we can’t help but share! Check out a few of them below and what you can expect at the event.
Veranico Kitchen & Market 65 are locally-owned boutique salad restaurants that are chef-driven and committed to sourcing locally. Both grow a portion of the produce and herbs served daily. The food is thoughtful because of their careful, creative and innovative approach to cuisine. Guests of the restaurants should expect to receive more than just a meal, they will get an experience and a happier, healthier life. At the Healthy Living Festival, they will be serving up small samples of their most popular signature bowls, scratch soups, and house-made granola bars for guests to try!
