Optimize Your Health at Your Local Farmers’ Market

Enjoy a walk around your local Farmers Market. It is a great place to buy fresh herbs and produce. It is also a good way to get some exercise and it helps support local farmers! Many fruits, vegetables and herbs are considered to be super foods. Farmers Markets are a great place to find a vast array of seasonal produce that is at its peak quality and ripeness. This fresh produce provides vital nutrients for healthy aging.

Get Your Colors!
Each color range of produce contains different compounds or phytonutrients. These compounds are what give fruits and vegetables their color, aroma and flavor.

Phytonutrients are rich in powerful antioxidants with research linking them to many health benefits.

If you’re diabetic, select more vegetables than fruit.   When having fruit, pair with protein to minimize spikes in blood sugar.

Try berries with plain NF Greek yogurt or a small apple with 1 oz. LF string cheese.
