It’s harvest time and once again the local farmers’ market will reopen May 1offering locally grown fresh vegetables and other goods.

The first week’s offerings are expected to be mustard greens, tender greens, yellow squash, potatoes, yard plants, house plants, homemade jams and jellies, local honey, fresh eggs, homemade cookies, bread and more.

Hours will be 3-6 p.m. Wednesday afternoons and 7-10 a.m. Saturday mornings through the summer and until the end of the growing season in the fall.

It is located in the parking lot in front of Big Lots on MacArthur Drive.

There is no cost to vendors and you don’t have to call first, just show up; however if you are uncertain whether the item you want to sell is something that’s allowed call Texas AgriLIFE at 409-882-7010.

The Orange County Farmers’ Market is sponsored by Texas AgriLIFE.
