A SATUR­DAY MORN­ING AT THE TOM­BALL FARM­ERS MAR­KET

Public News (Houston) - - EXPOSURE -

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.
