5 Farmers Markets You Must Visit For a Healthy Smile

Sunny days and warm nights on the deck. Grilling and chilling. It’s that time of year and we think nothing says summer quite like a farmers’ market. Not only do markets provide a healthy and inexpensive alternative to typical grocery store shopping, but we also love the fact that many foods you can find there are tooth-friendly. For example, did you know foods like apples and celery work as natural tooth exfoliators and help to prevent stains?

Since Dr. Dental prides itself on serving patients up and down the East Coast, we thought we’d do a little exploring to find some of the best spots for farm-fresh eats near our locations. Here are five farmers’ markets that deserve a visit – and a SMILE – this summer:

Cambridge/Kendall Square Farmers’ Market
510 Kendall St. 

Cambridge, MA

Wednesdays, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. | May – October

If you happen to be near MIT, and it happens to be a Wednesday, skip the grocery store and shop at this fabulous farmers’ market. You can get your standard produce and also indulge in fresh bread, specialty sauces, gourmet potato chips, maple syrup, nuts, cheese, cookies and more. Crafts made by local artisans also are available. Learn more by visiting http://kendallsquare.org/.
