Brownsville Farmers Market

From their website: The idea of starting a farmers’ market in Brownsville arose from the realization that the town was lacking a place where fresh produce, reasonably priced, could be easily accessible to all–a lack that takes on critical importance in South Texas, an area where obesity and diabetes soar above the national rates. From this awareness and the growing popularity of farmers’ markets in the United States, faculty from the School of Public Health and staff from the Department of State Health Services joined efforts to begin exploring the possibility of opening a farmers’ market in Brownsville .

The vision of the Brownsville Farmer’s Market is to promote policy and environmental changes that make healthy foods and active lifestyles an easy choice for all families in South Texas. Current initiatives include a farmers’ market, voucher programs, community gardens, and research and education.

Open Every Saturday Morning, 9:00 AM to 12:00 Noon
