By Brandilyn Brown

Our local farmers markets are an absolute treasure and will help you stay fit and healthy by eating fresh and tasty produce grown right here in the Central Valley. This handy list of local certified farmer’s market locations will help you find your groove and stay on track with your health goals. Remember to take your reusable bags, and ride your bike to the market when you can.
Modesto- Yes of course, fruits and veggies, but here you can also find fresh eggs from MJC, purple potatoes and exotic mushrooms, bacon-on-a-stick from Green’s Market booth, fresh pita chips at the hummus booth, and even soaps, jellies and crafts. Music fans can boogie to tunes sponsored by ModestoView.
