Saturday, March 5 - We visited the Farmers Market At Imperial this morning. It is held every Saturday from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.
It is on land once owned by the Imperial Sugar company, one of the companies that gave “Sugar” Land, Texas it's name. It was actually the discovery of wild sugar cane back in the 1800's that lead to the development of Sugar Land, Texas. From that discovery came Imperial Sugar, one of the oldest continuously operating companies in the State of Texas and a bran trusted all across America for generations. The history of Imperial is very interesting. Click here to read more.
We started our visit with a great cup of coffee. The coffee we had was from Rwanda. We enjoyed watching how the gal made our fresh-brewed cup of coffee.
It was a typical farmers market with locally grown produce ranging from carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.
There were also a couple booths of bake goods, honey sales, a few people selling handmade crafts, and several people selling spices.
We stopped for awhile at an India booth selling India spices and breads. Houston has a culturally diverse population with a significant population from India as well as numerous other countries. We were delighted with the unusual tastes of this gal’s spices and breads and made a couple purchases to take home.
After visiting for about an hour, we headed back to the Houston Elks Campground to relax for the rest of the day.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
