Want to Shop Local? Houston Farmers’ Markets are Where To Be!
Houston Farmers’ Markets
We all know that Houston is BIG! Like, plan Buccee’s, Cracker Barrel, and Whataburger stops when you are visiting your friends across town big. But, when you live here you can forget how good we have it. If you need it we have it – at just about any time of the day. When it comes to food we are more than covered. From my house alone I have at least six grocery stores in the rotation. So, why was I surprised when I started researching Houston Farmers’ Markets that we have over 30!?
Fresh, local food is at our fingertips in an almost embarrassing abundance. Sure, some of our Houston Farmers’ Markets are only open certain weekends of the month but if you look at the map above and check out the spread of little green farm icons we have a wealth of opportunity to not only support our bodies with all this fresh produce and goods but our local communities by supporting these small businesses.
Check out the map and find your friendly neighborhood farmer or artisan. You will find far more than carrots and beans at a Houston Farmers’ Market. You will find hand-milled soaps, small batch oils, tamales, pretzels, and more. It is worth exploring a few to find a good fit for your needs.
We have added the full list to our Shop Local Directory page but have copied them here too, for your convenience! Now, go shopping!
