The healthy importance of farmers markets



GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – It’s summer and the perfect time to enjoy your local farmers market. Besides great fruits and vegetables, farmers markets help tp improve the health of a community. Dr. Geri from Ideal You is our Weight Loss Expert and she joins us today to discuss just that.

Farmers markets provide local, seasonal fruits and veggies that will always be a better nutritional match for us then commercially grown, imported out-of-season produce. Because the foods are grown locally, farmers markets offer foods that are fresher and unlikely to be sprayed with waxes and other chemicals needed for shipment and shelf life – local also means less fuel use, less plastic packaging and so buying at FM is better for the environment too.
