Want farm fresh vegetables and more? Then you'll want to shop at the Concho Valley Farmer's Market!


The Concho Valley Farmers Market's thrice-weekly produce sales begin at 7 a.m. with a hardy spread of winter vegetables.

The vendors, who come from a 75-mile radius around San Angelo, will be offering locally grown and seasonal fruits, vegetables and plants from 7 a.m. until they sell out (typically by noon) every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday thereafter. The farmers market gathers under the pavilion at 609 S. Oakes St. across from Fort Concho.

Margie Jackson, president of the Concho Valley Farmers Market, said the inventory will consist of items such as greens (including spinach, lettuces and collards), green and purple onions, beets, carrots, asparagus, radishes, Swiss chards (a type of beet), perhaps some zucchini and squash, along with indoor and outdoor plants, pecans, goat cheese, farm-fresh eggs, coffee, and fresh herbs such as basil, thyme, cilantro, parsley and rosemary.

The farmers market typically charges customers $1 for a bundle or a bowl of produce.

Interested farmers can join the market for $15 or $20, which allows them to set up a stand for $5 or $10 at each sale.

The market will hold its sales until the first fall freeze. For more information, contact Jackson at 325-245-3338.
