Live Green: Local Farmers Markets

 

Spring is here! Well, almost. The first day of Spring is officially on March 19th and you know what that means? It’s planting season! Your local farmers markets will be filled and flourishing with natural goodness for you and yours to enjoy! Since we moved to Houston and started living in the city again, I’ve greatly missed visiting a local market. My buddy mentioned that there’s a great market right down the street from me! How did I not know?!

As it turns out, a lot of people are unsure of where the closest farmers market is. So I started doing a little research and found the National Farmers Market Directory. Simply input your zipcode, search, and you’ll receive a listing of all the local markets including direct links to their websites for more detailed information! So easy!

After using this feature myself, I found the farmers market my friend mentioned, Urban Harvest Farmers Market. This looks amazing! Not only do they have the market, but they also offer educational programs, community gardens, and gardening advice. They “encourage community, good nutrition and sustainability through the teaching and support of organic gardening.” (UrbanHarvest.org)
