Texas is Home to Some of the Best Farmer’s Markets in the US
The Angelina County Farmer's Market didn't win the honor of the best farmer's market in Texas, but it's still a great place for East Texans to stock up on produce, jellies, jams, salsa, and honey. Any guess which Texas city's farmer's market was voted the best?
MSN picked the best farmer's market in every state, and picked the Hope Farmer's Market in Austin as its top choice because of the "games, workshops and family events" that are part of the market each week. What about the watermelons?
The Angelina County Farmer's Market is an open air market on South Medford in Lufkin, with a wide range of local creations including corn, peaches, salsa, and quilts. And it's a good family outing, or date day.
Foodies continue to be focused on farm-to-table and fresh ingredients, and the farmer's market is a great way to get that, and support the local economy at the same time.
The Nacogdoches Farmer's Market is located at the old "hitch lot" in historic downtown Nacogdoches, at 107 W. Pearl Street. They're open every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. They've also got the seasonal market on Wednesdays from 12 noon to 5pm, and that runs through the summer.
Austin is great, but there are plenty of great Farmer's Markets to hit right here in East Texas. MSN may overlook them, but that just leaves more watermelon and honey for the rest of us. See you at the market!
