Urban Harvest Farmers Market
Houston has been a little late to the "eat local" food movement. But the fledgling cause has found a home in a gigantic parking lot in the Upper Kirby area, where vendors set up stalls early every Saturday morning, offering locally grown vegetables, organic meat, fresh fish, eggs and other farm-to-market products. Strike up a conversation with the vendors, who usually are in the same location every weekend. The ever-expanding operation is overseen by Urban Harvest, a non-profit organization that believes fruit, vegetable and habitat gardens improve everyone's quality of life.
