As we transition into the Fall season, sometimes our workouts become less frequent; compromising fitness time for work and winter preparation. It’s during this time we need to remember that our diet is equally important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle as our workout. Luckily, our Philadelphia Farmer’s Market provides the nutrients and energy boosts we need to beast through this season and preserve our sexy summer bodies.
Forever the Freshest Picks- Philadelphia Farmer’s Market in the Fall
Apples are a high source for green monster drinks, and you’ll be surprised that you can actually supplement this beverage for that pumpkin spice latte you’ve been craving, as it’ll get you through your work day a lot more efficiently. At the farmer’s market, the apple varieties are aplenty so that you can switch from sour to sweet depending on your personality that day!
In addition to apples, grapes, broccoli, and corn will be at its peak this season; just in time for vegetable tray season! We all love bringing easy things to a Fall potluck, so switch it up by making a custom tray full of this season’s finest.
Stock your tray with these produce staples that peak around fall and will be available at your local farmers market:
- Green Beans
At the 33rd & Diamond St Farmer’s market, you can be sure that your produce is it’s freshest as it’s grown only three blocks away from the EPRA and PHS City Harvest. Supporting your local farmer doesn’t get any closer than that!
The Chestnut Hill farmer’s market and the Rittenhouse Square farmer’s market will be heightening your spice palette this season as herbs and mushroom will be in abundance, and weekend dinners could use a pick me up, with a new spicy kick!
The only thing you really have to worry about is succumbing to the smells of the baked goods offered at these markets. On a cheat day, stroll through for an apple crumb cake or apple butter spread, and if you’re lucky a homemade donut! After all, it still beats the other junk we’re into!
