Theres something about farmers markets that just reeks of wholesome goodness. Maybe its all those fresh veggies practically oozing vitamins and nutrients; maybe its the fact that they have a huge role in supporting farmers during such a bleak economic period. Or maybe its the abundance of animal-adoption booths (and the reason some of us have five cats). With the nations increased interest in health foods and all things organic, farmers markets have been sprouting up everywhere. Not only do these outdoor marketplaces encourage the benefits of fresh air and consuming leafy greens, but they also focus on the importance of preserving natural resources and maintaining the success of local farmers. Every Thursday, Anaheim hosts its own health-and-wellness fair, including fresh produce, flowers, crafts, live entertainment and baked goodswhich means cupcakes, for those still hesitant.
