The Urban Harvest Farmers Markets bring the bounty of the garden to Houstonians several times a week year round, rain or shine. Growers offer locally produced vegetables, fruits, farm products, dairy products, prepared foods, cut flowers and plants. Our colorful markets support a number of family farms and boost the income of small growers from the area. Even school groups, community gardeners and backyard gardeners have the opportunity to sell their products and learn about market gardening with the Houston Regional Market Growers Co-op.
Andrew Alvis and Matthew Braud are back at the market this week with their unique assortment of leafy greens for their aquaponics farm northwest of Cypress. Not sure what aquaponics is? It's sustainable and they can grow beautiful salad greens all year. Learn more on their website or come by their booth this Sunday to see their interactive display.
