I made my way into the evolving downtown Tomball, TX today to visit their new Farmer’s Market. (Tomball, isn’t the most hopping place like Spring, but it’s getting there.)
It was the usual display of pop-up gazebos, aligned in a row, with just a few off to one side, like a very short T.
A guitar player was singing songs in Spanish.
There were actual Farmers there displaying their fruits and veggies.
There were Ranchers there taking orders for beef, chicken, and pork.
There were purveyors of BBQ, selling sliced beef sandwiches.
Two Beekeepers showed up selling honey, pollen, and Beeswax. I took the time to chat with them about their girls, and how things were looking for them this Spring.
There were handmade Bird Houses, Soaps, Lotions, and Commercial Skin Care lines ready to make a sale.
I saw a local Olive Oil merchant and chatted him up about his trees. The olive oil was quite good, and who knew that Mission Olives did so well in Texas?
Gathering my goodies, I made my way to the car. There is nothing like a fresh tomato. Just pulled radishes, and just cut Brussel Sprouts called out to me, so I gathered them up too. I can’t wait to make a great dinner.
