Jacksonville Farmers Markets & Health Food Stores
Jacksonville has some really awesome farmers markets…I encourage you to get out and explore what our local area farmers harvest. Their produce is much better quality, more fresh, generally less expensive and will last longer since it doesn’t need to be shipped across the country. When you are shopping for produce, keep in mind the daily nutrition guidelines to get the most from what you buy. Our diets have the single biggest impact on our health. So, feed yourself the very best that you can. Unfortunately, the very best rarely comes from Publix, Winn Dixie or any other major grocer. So, for the very best produce you need to hit the local farmers markets. Also, when you do go shopping for produce, have a plan to help maintain healthy food choices.
