HOUSTON, TX — Go Healthy Houston's Get Moving Houston Farmers Market aims to provide easier access to cheap but high-quality fresh fruits and vegetables in Houston neighborhoods.
The Farmers Market also focuses on food desert areas with products that come from local farmers. This year is their 10th annual farmers market.
Fruits and vegetables are essential to prevent or delay chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease. Fruits and vegetables also help humans stay healthy and recover from light sicknesses such as flu and dry skin.
The market is part of Go Healthy Houston's efforts to reduce the community's food insecurities, lower obesity rates, malnutrition-related chronic disease, and reinforce the community's health and local economies.
