Farmers Market Partners LLC has announced they will take over the management of the Pearland Town Center Farmers Market. “We are excited about the opportunity to convert the current Pearland monthly market to a weekly Sunday Market” said Jill Argento-Co Founder of Farmers Market Partners.
The location will remain the same, under the Pavilion at Pearland Town Center, 11200 Broadway Street. Our Farmers Market objective is to support local Texas Agriculture, Ranchers and small Artisan businesses….all of whom have big dreams! The new weekly market will take place every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (except October 5th)
Join them every Sunday starting July 7th, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and enjoy our Farmers Market plus more under the covered pavilion. Food trucks will also be frequenting the market.
There was a huge farmer's market in Chattanooga when I was growing up, it covered several blocks. I would love to see one like that again, but don't think it will happen. My mother used to buy large quantities to freeze and can. She could never buy a reasonable amount, it would be a bushel of peas(sore fingers for days) or 40 dozen ears of corn. When I started freezing and canning for my family I worked with reasonable amounts at a time.
We started going to Farmers Markets in 1980 after our first child was eating table food. We wanted our children to have the most bang since they don't eat much as toddlers. We bought a freezer and every year I would freeze: 2 bushels of corn on the cob - shucked and cut off the cob 2 bushels of peas still in the pods - pods stripped off 1 bushel of fresh green beans - snapped 20 pint jars of fig preserves - we had a large fig tree in our backyard. This was much healthier for all of us. I'm retired now and need to start doing this again for the health benefits. It will be on a much smaller basis since we are empty nesters.
@Sherry3898 : That sounds like us, except the jam, we didn't feed ours anything like that. The first time someone tried to give ours cake with frosting, my son turned it down. He was 3, and told my sister, "no thank you, our mom does not let us eat food with mud on it."
My kids aren't big sweet eaters either. I refused to feed them pureed fruits when they were babies. I only gave them vegetables and meats. I think my son was almost one before he had apple sauce! To this day they will eat vegetables over sweets, although my son is the pickiest on vegetables. I'm very proud of my two, they have very diversified palettes - and will eat a wide variety of foods. They also prefer to eat in to out, and will cook healthy for themselves. - One of my greatest accomplishments as a parent.
