Farmer’s Markets are good for your mood

Crafty Mart June 2012A recent article in Psychology Today suggests that shopping at farmer’s markets can improve your mood. Essentially, we feel good about not only buying fresh food, but also giving our money directly to the person who grew it and not a corporate middle man. The author has written a book about people’s relationship to food, and he studies how different food (and grocery shopping) experiences affect our minds.

Choosing to go to the farmers market adds significance to the act of obtaining food. – John S. Allen, PhD

Another enjoyable feature of farmer’s markets is that they tend to be outside, and fresh air makes us feel good. The social interaction between you and the farmer is also usually pleasant, and your fellow shoppers are there by choice, which probably makes everyone happier to be there.

Take a look at the article and see if you find it to be true.

Highland Square Farmer’s Market today!

The Countryside Conservancy Farmer’s Market sets up in at the corner of Conger and W. Market St. in Highland Square every Thursday from 4-7pm. I went last Thursday and picked up some delicious strawberries. There are also vegetable plants, greens, root veggies, rhubarb, and more! So, go make yourself happy and shop the farmer’s market.
