Looking for local farm goods? Houston has several local food co-ops that buy directly from local farmers... Buy a "share", which is a set amount of fruits and/or vegetables, and the co-op purchases a bulk amount from local farmers. Our small, mixed share of fruits and veggies is about 20.00 - for instance, this week, we expect to get Strawberries, Avocados, a few Potatoes, local Carrots, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Salad Mix, Radishes, Lemons, etc. Check out www.centralcityco-op.com for info.
August is the big month for all of the delicious crops of tomatoes, cucumbers, melons..your carbon footprint will never be as small as it is this month if you take advantage of local farmers markets and get the locally grown produce,
