Five Reasons to Love the Lufkin Farmer’s Market

Some of the best produce comes from the late spring and early summer months, so now is a great time to head to Farmer’s Markets around East Texas.

Here are some reasons to really appreciate the Lufkin and Nacogdoaches Farmer’s Markets, along with the hours and locations.

The Nacogdoches Farmers Market is open every Saturday at the old “hitch lot” in downtown Nac, 107 W. Pearl Street. They’re open year round, from 8 a.m. until noon.

The Angelina County Farmers Market in Lufkin is at 2107 S. Medford Drive, and it’s all covered to keep the sun from melting the jams and jellies.  Hours are Mon – Fri 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.; Saturday 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.; Sunday 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Produce is as fresh as it gets.



The apples, tomatoes, strawberries, and peaches don’t have to travel far to reach the fruit dish on your countertop.  They’re grown right here in East Texas, and they’re ripening at just the right time.



It’s more than just fruits and vegetables



Local farmers are creating jars of honey which are great to fight local pollens and other allergies, and often they’re making pickles, jams, and jellies too.  Oh, and bring on the smoky salsa.



It supports the local economy



Grocery stores are great, but when you buy from a local farmer you know your money is staying in East Texas and helping a local family make a living.  They’ve worked hard to till, plant, water, and harvest, and it feels good to support that effort.  So they’ll keep it coming!



It’s a great family outing



US News says visiting a Farmer’s Market is one of eight free ways to keep the kids busy this summer.  It teaches them about fresh ingredients and healthy eating, and it can start conversations about sustainable living.  And sometimes the vendors have balloons!



It’s a chance to meet people



Walking around the Farmer’s Market gets us out of our usual routines and helps us meet people we wouldn’t otherwise meet.  And seeing what other ambitious people around East Texas are doing just might inspire us to start that salsa company we’ve been dreaming about.
