Many people cringe at the thought of stocking up on fruits and vegetables for they week. Grocery shopping can feel like a chore – I get it. But if you hope to build a lifelong, positive relationship with food and your body, it’s important to find ways to build positivity into all your food-related experiences, including shopping for your food. Which is why I love the market. It breaks the routine of mindlessly grocery-carting your way through the store and huffing and puffing at the long lines at the checkout counter. Heading to market at this time of year, when the fresh seasonal fare is flooding the stands, will leave you inspired and excited to whip up nourishing meals for yourself and your family.
And so, to get the inspiration started, I thought I would share with you what I picked up on my weekend market haul and hope it can motivate you to head down for yourself.

Markets in your area
The harsh reality is that many places (some much closer than you may think) do not have access to fresh produce. Which is why we should be thankful and not take our markets for granted! Here are some resources to help you pinpoint markets and local fare in your area.
