Ask the Dietitian Los Angeles County Program at Farmers' Markets

Why Shop at a Farmers' Market?

  • You can get the freshest foods picked a day or even hours ago, which means better health for you and your family.
  • Fruits and vegetables can lose quality and health benefits over time. Broccoli loses 34% of its vitamin C in just 2 days.
  • Farmers' markets allow you to meet the farmer who grew your food, and you can also get recipes for the food you just bought.
