Stock up on fresh produce all summer long at these farmers markets in and around Houston.
My favorite thing about the summer is buying fresh, in season, produce from farmers markets. The beauty of Houston is that we are blessed with so many -- and ones that are open just about every single day.

Here are ten farmers markets in and around the Houston area for you to frequent this summer, whether it is on a Saturday morning or after work on a Tuesday, there's a farmers market waiting for you.

10. Grogan's Mill Farmer's Market
Every Saturday, 8 a.m.- noon

For those of you who live in The Woodlands or in Spring, this farmers market is perfect for you. Located in the Grogan's Mill Village Center, this farmers market offers a variety of vendors year-round selling gourmet coffee, fresh goat milk products, homegrown vegetables from local farms and even treats for your dogs. In fact, you can bring your dog to walk around the farmers market while you enjoy an iced coffee from AA Costa Rican Gourmet Coffee and a pastry from Angela's Oven.

9. Spring Branch Farmers Market
Every Thursday, 2-7 p.m.

As soon as you get off work on Thursday, head on down to the Spring Branch Farmers Market. The market opens up at 2 p.m., but stays open until 7 p.m. The market re-opened in April of this year and not only sells fresh produce, but also meals that are ready to go. Make things easier on yourself after work and grab something delicious.

8. Galveston's Own Farmers Market
Sundays, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

If you're in Galveston on the weekend, stop by the farmers market for something to eat for breakfast or grab some snacks and food for lunch during your trip to the beach. Purchase fresh herbs, produce, eggs and even products like freshly made pasta. Try this as something different the next time you take the family to the beach, or The Strand.

7. Kingwood Farmers Market
Every Thursday, 3-7 p.m.

Kingwood Farmers Market is another place you can grab food on a weekday. Pick up some local produce, beef, eggs, cheeses and a variety of sauces or nuts for the weekend.

6. Rice University Farmers Market
Every Tuesday, 3:30-7 p.m.

In the South Stadium Lot off of University Boulevard at Rice University you can purchase a bountiful amount of fresh produce, homemade breads, local honey, fresh meats and seafood, along with herbs, seasonings and even treats for your pet. Each Tuesday the farmers market is open from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Support local vendors and visit the beautiful Rice University campus during an evening trip to the farmers market.

How about providing current location information for all, instead of just some, of these entries?  (You are in the business of providing information, right?)

Oh well.  At least you provided a link to some Facebook pages.  It may be lazy, but at least it's not useful!

most of the farmer's markets i have visited have been extremely reasonable in price.. no $5 tomatos. in fact, the one by my house, veronica's fruit stand, has whole small baskets of tomatoes for 2 dollars. there is usually 5 or 6 in the basket.
