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.
