FEEDER FARMERS MARKET Houston’s first freeway-side farmers market debuts this Friday at 3 pm in the parking lot of the HCC Southwest College’s West Loop campus. Appropriately enough, the market’s organizers at Urban Harvest are telling visitors this new market at 5601 West Loop Fwy. South “will have more of a ‘street food’ component with more food trucks” as well as locally prepared foods. The HCC campus was created out of what was originally a store for Incredible Universe, Tandy Corp.’s short-lived mid-nineties venture into big-box electronics retailing. Also beginning soon: another Urban Harvest farmers market on Thursdays, in Sugar Land Town Square. [Fort Bend Sun] Photo: WhisperToMe
Perfect location for me and in fact I hope to ride my bike to and from in the very near future.
I used to work at Incredible Universe. Lots of fun, almost like a college atmosphere. Apropos that it was turned into one. Many of the other IU locations were turned into Fry’s, I think there’s only one or two completely abandoned.
FYI- Sugar Land also has a farmers market running thru December in the parking lot of the old sugar mill.
