Farm Fresh Market Now Available

Posted By on Tue, Aug 14, 2007 at 12:00 AM

Listen up foodies! A new farmer’s market is happening Friday mornings over in the Pearl Brewery area. Fresh honey, roasted nuts, and Indian cucumbers are just some of the offerings available from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. We can thank Brian and Elise Montgomery, owners of Texas Farm to Table restaurant, also located on Pearl Parkway, for the new market in town.

The vibe is fun and laid-back in the wide parking lot that bestows about ten farmer’s stands, all offering something different, and samples of all the goods are practically impossible to avoid. I’m not sure if it’s happened yet, but Brian told me that he was going to get a local band to play some fresh tunes during the market hours to liven up the scene. He also said that soon, if not already, some of the farmers are going to sell artisan products. Fresh flowers, homemade jams and jellies, and cheese are some examples of the artisan goods hoping to be available.

Brian and Elise have worked really hard at getting the farmer’s market to us, so let’s take advantage of the opportunity while supporting our local farmers. It’s only a 6-month “pilot” market, so in order to keep it, we need to get out there and spend some bucks on the product. The purchase is a reward itself.
