Farmers Market at Washington-On-The-Brazos
August 17 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 10:00 am on day Third of the month, repeating until November 16, 2019
Washington on the Brazos State Historic Site is holding Farmers Markets from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. under the live oak trees outside the park’s Visitor Center every third Saturday, from April through November (except August). Local vegetables, fruits, snacks from food trucks, baked goods, artisan items and more will be sold at this free event, sponsored by the Washington on the Brazos Park Association. The market will also offer visitors educational opportunities about sustainable local food and farming practices.
The markets will be held rain or shine since vendors can move inside. Parking and admission to the park are free, as always.
The Farmers Markets are held on the same day as the park’s “Living History Saturday” event from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., where staff and volunteers dress in period clothing to bring to life the people and events of the 1830s. Living History Saturday presents a unique opportunity for the entire family to discover various aspects of life during the Republic of Texas.
Some vendors include Scott Family Farm from Anderson, TX (Texas eggs and pasture fed pork and beef); Bee Apiary and Apothecary from College Station, TX (honey and handmade soaps and lotions); Land of Milk and Honey Vegetable Farm, LLC from Navasota, TX (Texas seasonal produce); Nonny’s Niche from Hempstead, TX (restored furniture, repurposed barn wood and old window décor); and food truck, The Flava Trailer from Brenham, TX (hamburgers, chicken wings, French fries and snow cones).
**November Market will be holiday/Christmas theme
