How Can a Farmers Market Visit Benefit Your Health?

Frisco Fresh Market, Outdoor Market Events

Farmers’ markets offer a great opportunity to get away from the city hustle and enjoy shopping for excellent foods and handmade products at a beautiful outdoor venue.

But did you know that the atmosphere of a farmer’s market offers so much more than just an excellent ambiance? At Frisco Fresh Market, we know that our location brings several health benefits to the guests that walk through our weekend events.

Here are 5 of the biggest ways a visit to Frisco Fresh Market can help you improve your health while diversifying your dinner table options.

Locally Grown Produce Reduces Exposure to Pesticides

When national farmers know that their food has to go through extensive travel, pesticides are commonly used to keep produce “fresh.”

Pesticides are known to have long-term health effects that include:

  • Cancer
  • Brain Damage
  • Damage to a Fetus

No one wants to eat their health away, and these issues are one thing that shopping at a farmer’s market can mitigate. Our local farmers know that they’re bringing their products from the farm to the table for our customers. None of our produce is genetically modified or sprayed with pesticides for preservation.

When you buy produce from Frisco Fresh Market, you’re not just eating well, you’re eating safer.

Being Outdoors Can Offer a Boost to Your Health

Being out in the sun can be an excellent way to promote your health. Sunlight in moderation can help you reduce stress, strengthen your bones and give you Vitamin D which helps your immune system.

A little sunshine can go a long way. So we say, get your outdoor fix with some fun at a farmers market!

We Promote Positivity at Frisco Fresh Market

We believe that emotional health and physical health go hand-in-hand, and a farmer’s market is the perfect place to get your social fix.

When you’re in an area surrounded by like-minded people, even if you don’t talk to anyone, you’ll still feel a sense of community that could improve your serotonin levels and leaves you walking away happier, healthier, and ready to take on the next part of your day.

Every Step Counts When Visiting the Farmer’s Market

When you’re at the farmers market, you’re staying active. Walking around our booths and filling your bags with your favorite goods is in itself, physical activity.

While you may not close all of your activity rings in one visit, we guarantee you’ll get some much-needed steps in at our vast location.

Local, Fresh Produce Offers Nutrients Your Body Needs

Nothing tastes better than produce that’s locally grown and hits your table fresh from the farm. While taste is a key factor in the quality of your produce, fresh fruits and vegetables also bring along several nutritional benefits that give your body the energy it needs to keep you moving.

Some of the nutrients that you could gain from fresh produce include:

  • Calcium
  • Fiber
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Potassium
  • Iron
  • Zinc, and more!

Our vendors are extremely knowledgeable about the produce they sell and can help you understand the nutritional benefits of the items they have on offer each weekend.
