Yesterday, Saturday November 14th, I attended the weekly Saturday Farmers Market in Bryan, Texas. I have been to the market once before as a customer over the summer, but this time I came with the Howdy Farm selling our produce! It was incredibly interesting viewing the market from a different perspective. At the market we were selling romaine lettuce, butter head lettuce, basil, cilantro, chives, and lemongrass. All very green produce! The lettuce was a huge hit, and the cilantro smelled fantastic.
I loved seeing all the different vendors coming together to sell create, local products to the community. There were many vendors present, including a couple of ladies selling grass fed beef, a local aquaponics farm selling their produce, and even some people selling hand made soaps! Many of the costumers were familiar with the Howdy Farm and so happy to by our produce, others became excited when first learning about the farm. It was so amazing seeing the community come together to support local businesses and farms with so much love. Despite waking up before 8am on a Saturday, I had a great morning at the farmers market and cannot wait to attend many more.
