A SATURDAY MORNING AT THE TOMBALL FARMERS MARKET
Tomball - Tucked in between Main Street Crossing and a few of Tomball’s municipal buildings is a block of land that is transformed every Saturday morning at 9am into a Farmer’s Market for over 40 vendors selling everything from fresh produce, honey, handmade Indian foods, salts and spices to bird houses, laser cut wood art, chocolates and free-range eggs.
The debut of the Tomball Farmer’s Market was June 2008 with just ten vendors. By August the market went from being open only on the 2nd Saturday of the month to the 2nd & 4th Saturdays of the month. After taking a poll of what their customers really wanted most (fresh produce), and after giving growers two years of farming experience, in 2011, they decided to open the market every week during the busiest produce season, from April through July and have now extended into a fall season as well. The Tomball Farmer’s Market became a year round, weekly market in 2012.
