Review of Lubbock Downtown Farmers Market by TexasRealFood
Like most towns across Texas, Lubbock has its own Lubbock Downtown Farmers Market. Held seasonally on the Saturdays of June to October, it promises to give the community of Lubbock and surrounding areas access to local produce and local value-add producers such as bakers, crafters and artisans, and food entrepreneurs.What sets Lubbock apart, however, is their clarity of vision. This clarity is the market’s gauge for distinguishing itself from your usual grocery or even other farmers markets. When they say fresh and local, it simply means that – grown in Texas and picked at the peak of ripeness – and not picked out-of-state or picked green and ripened during shipment.They’re clear on their purpose, too – and that’s to build a strong sense of community between vendors and customers. Getting to know the person who grew your food is probably the best part about this farmers market.
