City Hall Farmers Market Opens for Fall

City Hall Farmers Market Opens for Fall

“The farmers market is a great opportunity to pick up farm fresh produce and locally prepared ready-to-eat or packaged to-go foods,” said Mayor Sylvester Turner.  “There is also music, making it a fun way to enjoy the lunch hour with friends and coworkers.”

More than 30 vendors will feature items such as fresh produce grown by local farmers, cheeses, breads, coffee and a variety of prepared meals.  Food trucks will be stationed along the perimeter of City Hall.  This week’s entertainment will be offered by D-J Johnny J.

The farmers market is co-produced by Urban Harvest and the Mayor’s Office of Special Events.

Downtown residents and employees are encouraged to walk, take the Greenlink (the free downtown shuttle) or ride a bike via Houston Bike Share to the Farmers Market. Parking is available in the garage at 400 Rusk or at meters on the street.

For more information on the market visit: http://www.greenhoustontx.gov/farmersmarket.html
