Here at Glendale Holistic Dentistry, we believe that the overall health of our patients is crucial to their oral health. This means that part of taking care of your smile involves eating a healthy, balanced diet that ensures you are getting all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs.
In today’s day in age, it can often be difficult to choose fresh, healthy foods over convenient, fast, processed foods. Healthy and organic food can also be much more expensive than more processed options with lower nutritional value. One way to overcome these struggles is to shop at local farmers’ markets! Local farmers’ markets offer residents the opportunity to support local farmers and businesses, and can be more convenient and less expensive than specialty grocery stores. Farmers’ markets typically offer fresh, locally grown produce, along with other local products like honey, freshly baked bread, jams and jellies, prepared foods, and crafts made by local artisans!
There are plenty of farmers’ markets to choose from in the Glendale area. You probably have one somewhere in your neighborhood! Read on to find the farmers’ market closest to you.
