In 2004, Urban Harvest’s Saturday Farmers Market started with just seven vendors, providing an outlet for community and backyard gardeners to sell fresh produce harvested directly from their own soils. Today, many of our original vendors – including Animal Farm, Atkinson Farms, and Wood Duck Farm – are now part of one of Texas’ largest farmers markets, today supporting over 100 local Houston farmers market vendors.
All farmers, ranchers and food vendors in our market come from within 180 miles of Houston, offering the freshest, local produce and meats available. Our prepared and hot food vendors source at least 51% of their ingredients from local farms and growers, providing additional economic support to producers and building a more interconnected local food system.
Urban Harvest’s Houston Farmers Market Program continues to champion the vision that started it all:
support fresh, real food – and those who grow and raise it.
