BRIT Farmers Market                                                                  

 

BRIT's First Saturday Farmers Market takes place the first Saturday of each month from April-October, 8am - noon. The Market features a variety of fresh, seasonal produce from local gardens and farms, unique, locally produced specialty food items, live music and a rotating cast of food trucks. Bring the family and join us for this fresh approach to shopping local!

After you've enjoyed the market, please join us inside the building for BRIT's First Saturday programming which features hands-on educational workshops and programs, public tours of BRIT’s LEED-certified facility, Bella’s Story Time, and Plant Walks.

This year's Market signage is sponsored by Lone Star Ag Credit.  Thanks Lone Star!
