Food on the farm has mysteriously disappeared. Tractor Mac discovers that it was the pigs, who have overeaten again and are feeling sick. The pigs are reminded about the stomachaches that accompany gorging on junk food. Tractor Mac announces that at the Farmer's Market, the pigs can find all sorts of fresh food, vegetables, and organic foods, and that eating healthy makes you feel good.
When the farm animals go to the market, they discover the bounty of fresh foods available, as well as their delicious tastes. Tractor Mac Farmer's Market illustrates an important message about eating healthy. Fresh foods make you feel good, and that is why eating healthy is important. With so many misconceptions about food and poor habits that need correcting, Tractor Mac is an excellent way to introduce healthy eating habits, as well as sharing a positive reason to pay attention to what you eat.
