It finally has happened!! The Farmers Market in my area has opened up again, it’s not quite in full swing yet but I am pumped for all the amazing deals, plus you can’t beat farm fresh produce as well. (I have included links to some great products that can make your life easier. You can buy them through my online sales links.)
If you are new to Weight Watchers let me fill you in on a well-known secret most fruits and veggies are zero points!! For me, it was a change to start shopping at the Farmer’s Market in a new manner. You see ours has everything there that tastes amazing but isn’t good for you at all such as food carts, bakery, and homemade goodies to try out. For a while, I avoided the Farmers Market our of fear I wouldn’t stay on plan but I realized there are too many amazing things to buy at the Farmer’s Market that fits right in with the Weight Watchers Smart Points program I was kind of an idiot for not going.
Weight Watchers What To Buy At Farmers Market
Plant Starts- It can be fun to grow your own fruits and vegetables!! Getting your starts at a farmers market is a great way to get “Local Insider Information” on what does great when. It’s also a great way to save money growing your own instead of running to the store, plus everything tastes better home grown and home cooked.

Local Honey- There are so many benefits to local honey. Thankfully honey isn’t too high on the Smart Points that it’s a great splurge for your sweet tooth as well. Plus supporting local honey companies are a great way to support small businesses as well.
Fresh Produce- It is amazing how much better then store bought produce!! Plus the prices are amazing as well at the farmers market compared to the super market. And let me tell you the size of the Zucchinis are insane when the season hits plus the asparagus is so long and perfect for grilling as well!
Now be sure to go armed with your tools e-tools, calculator, pocket guides, and a plan! The plan is the most important one know what your weaknesses are (aka those pastries the bakery sells there) and know how you are going to avoid it. Don’t forget you can order a ton of Weight Watchers products on Amazon as well, I know it can be hard to get to my Weight Watcher store during hours.
