Local Houston Farmers Markets
Rice University Farmers Market
Rice University hosts a weekly farmers market, rain or shine, on Tuesdays from 3:30-6:30pm. Visit the market to find local and organic food and goods that are healthy and promote local vendors.

This is an organization that sells locally produced vegetables, fruits, farm products, dairy products, prepared foods, cut flowers and plants at their year-round farmers markets.
These markets take place on Saturdays at Eastside Farmers Market or Wednesdays at City Hall Farmers Market.
These take place rain or shine and please note that due to a city ordinance, dogs are not permitted at the markets.
On their website, a shopper is quoted raving about the market:
“In addition to a great selection of organic vegetables and fruits, excellent Indian food, meats, breads, crepes, breakfast tacos, coffee, and the best eggs in Christendom, you get the added benefit of a wonderful variety of faces, many familiar (regulars) and many new ones each week. There is no better place to drop by on Saturday mornings.” Check it out this week!
The Woodland’s Farmer Market at Grogan’s Mill
Open Saturday from 8:00am to noon, this market showcases different items and vendors on a weekly basis. To learn what they will have each week, you can sign up for a newsletter that is sent out each Friday.
It should be noted that all profits from the market are returned to the community through the Grogan’s Mill Village Association’s philanthropic programs, which includes local scholarships.
