Bayou City Farmers’ Market

Start your New Year off with a resolution to go local. The Bayou City Farmers’ Market offers a wide variety of Houston-grown fruits, veggies, coffees, honeys, spices, meats, eggs and more. It’s fresh and made from the ground you walk on — well, the parts of the ground that haven’t been paved over. Not sure how to use these ingredients? The market features cooking demonstrations. There’s also the added bonus of shopping out in the fresh air to the sound of live music, which beats the crap out of whatever elevator jazz they’re playing in aisles at your area grocery store. Say goodbye to boring, stale shopping in 2009. The market is open from 8 a.m. to noon. Saturdays. 3000 Richmond. For information, call 713-880-5540 or visit www.urbanharvest.org. Free.
Saturdays, 8 a.m.-noon, 2009
