One of the best things about living in Houston is the abundance of fresh, locally sourced food available in this region. And with all the farmers markets in the Houston area, you’ll be able to find everything you need to stock up for the week – and while having way more fun than you would at the grocery store!
Here are some of the best farmers markets in the Houston region.
Braeswood Farmers Market
One of the biggest draws to this market in the heart of Meyerland is its selection of food trucks. This is the place to go when you want a fun breakfast or lunch and pick up a little food for the fridge when you’re done. Their vendors’ menus resemble ads for fine dining with features like Maine lobster and grilled lamb chops. And of course, they have all the basic supplies you’ll need from produce to eggs to bone broth. Head over on Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings!
Westchase District Farmers Market
Blueberries, steaks, and tomatoes big enough to make Texas proud – Westchase has all of this and more. Their mission is all about creating sustainable and local food sources in the Houston region, providing good food to community members, and educating people on the importance of not just nutrition but in building healthy and sustainable food systems that benefit producers and consumers alike.
Houston Farmers Market
With 18 acres over on Airline Drive, this is the oldest and biggest farmers market in Houston. With its huge marketplace and giant sign, it is Texas to its core. Not only can you find produce, meat, dairy, eggs, and other food products here, but this is a legitimate restaurant destination with everything from Texas-style burgers to Viet-Cajun cuisine. This market is committed to hyper-local offerings – in other words, every item you’ll buy there is grown and produced in Houston.
Urban Harvest Farmers Market
This is one of Houston’s biggest farmers markets, with over 100 vendors! Make sure you head over early on Saturdays so you can explore as much of it as possible. Everything sold there is grown or produced no more than 180 miles away. Their goal is to support local growers and make sure their produce and delicious food products are accessible to all Houstonians.
