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)
If you live at Camden Greenway, Camden Plaza, or Camden Post Oak, you should definitely stop by this week! Urban Harvest is open Saturdays from 8am to noon at 3000 Richmond Ave Houston, Tx 77098 and on Wednesdays from 11am to 1:30pm at 901 Bagby Street Houston, Tx 77002.
If you’re wanting to “tread lightly” so to speak, check out Houston B-Cycle for bicycle rental and a quick ride! If you’re unable to make it out to a farmers market this week, but you still need those groceries, check out Instacart and Thrive Market- Grocery Deliver to Your Door.
You’re already living green if you’ve made a Camden community your home. We have each community’s unique “Live Green” features listed on Camdenliving.com. Look for the leaf to learn more about how you’re living green!
Wishing you a happy and healthy springtime!
