Vanderbilt has already set up a weekly farmers' market Thursday afternoons in the plaza of the medical center. Besides being a fun employee perk, the market full of fresh veggies fits in with the university's larger initiative to get employees and hospital visitors to eat better. (The employee wellness angle ultimately could save Vanderbilt money on health insurance and employee sick days.)

Today Vanderbilt kicks off a second Farmers' Market at its medical complex inside the repurposed 100 Oaks shopping mall. Vanderbilt Health One Hundred Oaks (apparently the words "One Hundred" make for a classier name than the three-digit number) will host the new market 3 to 6 p.m. today. Here's the announcement:

The highly anticipated Vanderbilt Farmers' Market at One Hundred Oaks begins Thursday, July 7.

Enjoy the convenience and the tasty pleasures of local offerings every Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m. through Oct. 27, across from the movie theater at the south end of the mall.

On the main Vanderbilt campus, the market remains in full swing every Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m. on the Medical Center Plaza.

All through the season, you can go to the Farmers' Market section of the Health Plus website to keep up-to-date with the latest seasonal highlights, recipes, vendor spotlights, and more.

The Vanderbilt Farmers' Market is a Health Plus, Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt and Nashville Farmers' Market collaboration.
