Health Tip: Shop Smart at Farmers Markets

Don't forget a shopping list

(HealthDay News) -- A farmers market can help you load up on fresh, locally grown produce that's good for your health and budget.

The Local Harvest website offers these suggestions to get the most out of your farmers market purchases:

  • Create a shopping list so you remember what to buy.
  • Become familiar with the farmers and their produce.
  • Talk to the farmers about their recommended purchases and how to prepare the vegetables.
  • Determine whether you want to shop as you browse, or if you'd prefer to check out the goods first, then decide what to buy.
