Urban Harvest Farmers Market Encourages Homegrown Cooking
Houston’s Urban Harvest Farmers Market offers locally-produced vegetables, fruits and farm products every Saturday and Sunday morning at three Houston area locations, all year long. The market helps to sustain local family farms, promote health and wellness and boost the Houston economy.
In addition, the market features an exceptional program known as the Gardeners' Corner, which allows school groups, community gardeners and backyard gardeners to sell their produce and learn the basics of market gardening.
Their Community Gardens Program provides classes and information on how to start a community garden and provides ongoing support for a network of more than 100 community and school gardens and urban farms. Support includes gardening advice, volunteer recruitment, Web pages in their Web Directory of Gardens, networking events, an annual awards ceremony, and free gardening classes.
Visit the Urban Harvest Farmers Market on Saturday at Eastside on Richmond from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. or on Sundays at the Highland Village from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or Discovery Green Park from 12 to 4 p.m. For more information on their produce and programs, visit their website at UrbanHarvest.org.
