Houston Farmers Market Revamp Nears Completion, With Very Different New Look
“The Houston Farmers Market is nearing the end of its redevelopment, with new open-air vendors, brick-and-mortar retailers and restaurants expected to open to the public during the spring.
The market is one of the city’s oldest produce markets, known for its wide array of food offerings and its lively atmosphere. It was established in 1942 by the Farmer’s Cooperative Marketing Association of Houston and has operated in the Greater Heights area near I-45 North and the 610 Loop for 78 years.
Improvements to the nearly 18-acre site include seven new climate-controlled buildings and an open-air covered pavilion. Other upgrades include new restrooms and common seating areas, organized parking and traffic circulation, defined sidewalks, site landscaping and a 1-acre dedicated green space.”
