Four California communities rank among the nation's "fittest cities" -- in part due to the fresh produce.

The New American Fitness index says the number of farmers markets per capita was a factor for all four areas. They are the San Francisco Bay, Sacramento, San Jose and San Diego.

Each community scored well because of the percentage of people who eat five or more daily servings of fruits and vegetables.
