Wellness Fair piggybacks Silly Market

Look for vendors promoting health this Sunday

Last year’s Wasatch Wellness Fair was held in City Park during a rainy Memorial Day Weekend. For the fair’s second year, organizer Rebecca Roberts is joining forces with the Park Silly Sunday Market.

On July 25, market attendees can visit vendors promoting dozens of ways to improve one’s health and fitness in addition to regular market vendors.

"There are 8,000 people at the market; that’s huge. If we tapped one percent of those people and turned someone’s life around with information about healthy eating, or if someone needs medical care and finds the People’s Health Clinic that’s pretty cool," she said.

Roberts runs The Sweat Shop, a gym at 1100 Iron Horse Drive. In addition to fitness experts like herself, the fair will also feature several physicians, food experts, people from Lunatic Fringe promoting Locks of Love and even people promoting pet adoption since furry animals have positive impacts on wellness, she said.

The Wasatch Wellness Fair will have its own section on the street, although the exact spot is still undetermined. From 12:45 to 1:15 a few different experts will take the market’s main stage to talk about wellness issues.

Roberts said the goal of the fair is to "shift perceptions." Hopefully people will get some new ideas about how to take care of themselves and change their lifestyle, she said.

"It takes a village to make changes we can band together to help people," she explained. " becoming part of a larger group, together we can effect really fabulous changes in our community as a team."

Roberts also recommends people bring extra cash to the market for the wellness vendors in addition to their regular booth stops. Many will be offering services on the spot for a fee.

Anyone interested in participating in next year’s third annual fair can contact Roberts at the fair or through her business, she said.
