Healthy New Yorkers
Did you know that 31.9% of New Yorkers consume three or more vegetables and fruits every day? This number could be even bigger if New York’s rate of farmers’ markets per million people, 18.3 (considered low), would be higher. “A higher rate of farmer’s markets per million people would diminish the barriers to a healthy diet,” says Barb Ainsworth, the chair of the American Fitness Index.
As a point of comparison, Washington, D.C., topped the list with 85.1 farmers’ markets per million residents.“New York City can increase the number of farmers’ markets to get closer to the leaders in the index and promote healthy diets,” Ainsworth said.
