Heights Epicurean Farmers Market Food, Music, Art, Fun Every First Saturday, In The Historical Houston Heights. The Heights Epicurean Farmers Market supports activities, goods, and services that promote community and the benefits of eating fresh, locally produced food. This once monthly market does this by inviting career farmers, backyard gardeners, which brings local food producers together with consumers in a festive, fun atmosphere.

The Heights Epicurean Farmers Market takes place at 1245 Heights Boulevard, every first Saturday of the month. The Farmers Market and Festivities will be from 8:30am until 1:30pm. Interested crafts persons, artists, entertainers, backyard farmers, career farmers and other vendors, fill out a short form, read the agreement, then make a $20 donation using the link on the website.

Heights Epicurean Farmers Market is a community wide and public event, which is open to all and there is no fee to come shop! The event takes place on the beautiful campus of one of the oldest houses of worship in the neighborhood. The historical Grace United Methodist Church Campus is the centerpiece of Heights Boulevard located prominently at the center of it all, at 1245 Heights Boulevard. Participating vendors showcase everything from dog biscuits and organic baby food to infused vinegars, locally-roasted coffee, bakery goods, chocolates, preserves, hot pepper jellies, handmade soaps, candles and skin care products. We have featured flowers, local honey, baked goods, coffees tea and cocoa, chocolates and more. All of the items on display at this market are either handmade, home-made, locally grown or sustainably produced in Texas.

You'll find sustainable, seasonal produce, fresh fruits and vegetables, micro greens and herbs from local area career farmers such as Last Organic Outpost and Plant It Forward Farms. More information on our participating farms below.

Plant It Forward Farms Houston is settling a record number of new refugees every year. Most have spent years in refugee camps outside of their own countries living in extreme conditions while waiting to realize the American dream. Once here they are faced with huge challenges assimilating into their new homeland as few have the language or job skills to find meaningful work. Some of these refugees come from agrarian backgrounds and they know how to raise quality food but there is not a single classified job posting for an experienced farmer.

Plant It Forward Farms brings together the people and resources needed to make that vision a reality. We partner with social and religious groups to provide land and tools to refugees who settle in Houston with few other skills besides farming. Refugees receive training at a model farm, as well as additional business assistance to help sell their produce to grocery stores, restaurants and farmers markets. A portion of each success helps provide opportunities for future refugees, and our replicable model can easily be scaled to support hundreds of urban micro-farms throughout the city and beyond. Through Plant It Forward Farms, refugees can become active and contributing citizens that help Houston realize its potential as a leader in sustainable living.

Last Organic Outpost The Last Organic Outpost was created to be a beautiful agricultural park in the inner city, to become a community of people helping people to learn about health and nutrition by growing what we eat. We believe it is urgent to know how to grow the food we eat. Our goal to promote self reliance for other communities, to refine ways to grow nutrient dense foods using cutting edge technologies like sea water agriculture and EM (effective microorganisms), to learn and teach holistic nutrition, help to create a food based economy in Houston by participating with other local and regional growers to produce and bring to local sustainable farmers markets quality nutrition accessible to all.

We are committed to forming alliances within our communities and by contributing to neighborhood food pantries. We at The Last Organic Outpost believe that the future of out planet depends on what we do today. We will advance our mission through internships, volunteer opportunities, tours of the garden, picnics, classes, and work weekends and public speaking engagements on topics such as raw foods nutrition\live foods preparation, seasonal and regional planting, identifying and introducing into our diet wild edibles from this area, juicing and nutrition for children in the garden. We are in the process of developing an international garden to grow food from other countries grown in similar climates.
