Food as Medicine: It’s Farmer’s Market Time
May 9, 2014
By Dr. Beth Quintana, N.D.
This time of year finds many of us settling quite nicely into the swing of spring. Early May in the Pacific Northwest is also when the majority of our seasonal farmer’s markets open. There are so many local farmer’s markets in the region that you can visit a handful of them any day of the week.
With an abundance of variety, you can easily eat a rainbow a day of whole, fresh, locally-grown food from one of your neighborhood farmer’s markets. Such variety not only keeps your diet fresh—it can also help keep you healthy by giving you a broader range of nutrients. Added bonus: "just picked" produce usually costs less and bursts with flavor.
Find a market near you and visit your local Farmacy. The first two resources listed are regional and statewide. If you don't see a direct link to your neighborhood market, check out one of the first two sites and use the locator feature. Have fun!
