Review of Dilorio Farm and Roadside Market by TexasRealFood
Dilorio Farms & Roadside Market is a family-owned 20,000 square feet, open-air and fan-cooled produce market open twelve months a year, seven days a week. Now with 4th generation family members serving the community of Hempstead, Texas, it started only as a seasonal roadside market in 1956. By 1968, the family expanded its operations year-round. After that, they built the present-day facility in 1986.The family allocates about 600 acres of farmland to its watermelon produce. Dilorio watermelons are famous and popular. “Now that I'm pregnant, I crave watermelon but will not be satisfied until it's Dilorio's!”They also carry another homegrown fresh produce year-round, as well as gourmet pickles, jellies, and preserves. There’s also an all-occasion flower shop personally managed by the family matriarch.
