Prescott Summer Farmers Market for Healthy Foods
Many cities hold farmers markets throughout the Spring and Summer months when they have an abundance of produce to sell. All kinds of goods are sold at farmers markets, including locally sourced fruits and vegetables (often organic or non-genetically modified), locally made or produced honey, dairy products from nearby dairy farms, and a variety of health-oriented snacks or treats. One of the best ways to find healthy foods for snacking and cooking is to visit the local farmers market in your city. As a dental office that promotes overall healthy habits ranging from physical fitness to oral cleanliness, we’ll always recommend choosing fresh summertime produce in lieu of processed items found on many grocery shelves. We encourage our patients to visit the Prescott Summer Farmers Market for Healthy Foods!
