Why I LOVE Farmers Markets!

Why I LOVE Farmers Markets!



Spring is here all across the country and that means Farmers Markets will be popping up in everyone’s city and town. I am fortunate to live in California where farmers markets are accessible year-round but I never take for granted our access to fresh, a variety of in-season and local produce. Not only does it taste better when cooking and eating, it also has the fullest nutritional value. Did you also know you’re contributing to your local economy when you purchase from your local farmers markets? Farmers Markets return more than three times as much of their sales to the local economy compared to chain stores.

I am excited to share my Farmers Market Haul with you on Instagram. I will be sharing what I brought home and my #protips on the best ways to clean, store, prepare and enjoy all the amazing items from my local market. Excited to have you follow along!




Why Farmers Markets? Because they are healthy for you and the economy!

2020 has arrived! This week I'm here to help you stick to your food and fitness New Year's Resolutions. Preparing meals at home is a huge part of maintaining a balanced diet.
