Health Resources in Modesto
I remember back about ten years ago Modesto was chosen as America's fattest city. The factors included things like bike trail availability, the number of gyms and the contrast of health food options (farmers markets, fruit stands, etc) vs. fast food options.
Certainly Modesto has come a long way. Not only are there actually more options for the health-conscious but we are doing a better job highlighting our county's assets. There are a number of websites and publications dedicated to doing just that such as Stanislaus Grown's Local Food and Farm Guide; Contentment Health Magazine; aglink.com, and happycow.net.
While we at Rodin Ranch Farmers Market want to be known for health food and do our best to stock a wide variety of fresh local fruit, being new our demand is not high enough to allow us to stock everything that grows abundantly in our county.
Therefore we recommend visits to the following local businesses to supplement our offerings:
- Village Health Foods at 1700 McHenry Ave in Modesto
- Sprouts Farmers Market at 1700 McHenry Ave in Modesto
- Chopping Block Butcher Shop and Deli at 2625 Coffee Road in Modesto
and of course our sister location (literally) Rodin Farms located at the corners of Oakdale and Claribel in Modesto.
