I’m sure we’ve all been there – you go in to see your doctor for an annual check-up, and you quickly get asked how well you’ve been eating. In our fast-paced society, getting all of our necessary nutrients can be difficult. Fast food, sweets, and fried foods are readily available, but sometimes fruits and veggies can be harder to find. Autumn is a great opportunity to capitalize on your local farmers market to remedy this problem! There are many perks to browsing your local farmers market. You can support local business, spend time relaxing and walking outside with your friends or family, and most importantly, bring home plenty of fruits and vegetables to eat throughout the week. Though eating produce fresh may be the healthiest way to enjoy these snacks, you may find roasting, sautéing, or even grilling your vegetables to be a delicious way to incorporate them into meals that the whole family can enjoy. North Texas is home to many farmers markets, some of which even run twice a week. Check online to find a farmers market near you!
