Wildwood Dental is always on the lookout for ways to encourage our patients to eat healthier because a healthy diet equals healthy teeth. One way to do that is to enjoy the fresh fruits and vegetables at one of the wonderful Snohomish-area farmers’ markets. An added bonus is that by shopping at the markets, you support sustainability and local farmers.
We have put together a list of local farmers’ markets for you. We encourage patients to take care of teeth by choosing fresh, healthy foods.
