The days are long and the sun is going strong – summer is officially here. And along with all of the fun that summer has to offer – pools, picnics and sunshine – don’t forget your waistline.

Students often have the desire to eat healthy and get fit but are short in two areas: money and time. But a trip to the area farmer’s market could make eating healthy a fun outing.

Farmer’s markets often give shoppers the best bang for their buck. The fruits and vegetables are locally grown and are affordable even on a student’s budget. What you give up in time is a small investment into a healthier lifestyle, and the market is also a fun social event bringing the community together.

Take a look at this farmer’s market directory based on your campus location and get ready for a social and savory feast. Bon appetit!
