The search for happiness should start at your local Sullivan Catskills Farmers Market, where you can find a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables. According to a 2016 study by the American Journal of Public Health of 12,389 individuals, eating fruits and vegetables can provide a boost in happiness.

Just how much happiness? The researchers concluded that with every additional daily portion of fruits and vegetables, happiness increased. The biggest bump in happiness occurred when those who ate barely any fruits and veggies began eating 8 portions a day. Their happiness increase was the same as if they had gone from being unemployed to employed.
