A Family Affair
Highland Park's neighborhood farmers market blooms for another season
Highland Park's beloved farmers market returns for a third year beginning May 12. A collaboration between San Antonio's Healthy Neighborhoods program, the Parks & Recreation Department, and local community groups, the farmers market is an opportunity for residents to not only snag South Texas' best local produce, but to celebrate this classic San Antonio neighborhood.
Highland Park Neighborhood Farmer’s Market runs every second Saturday, now through October at 901 Rigsby Ave. In addition to stalls of fresh fruits, vegetables, and local goods, the market also features cooking demos, games and physical activities, arts and crafts, wares from local artisans, and kid-friendly events throughout the season.
It's also an opportunity, says the Highland Park Neighborhood Association, for local entrepreneurs to showcase their work.
"The farmers market will provide a space for residents to enjoy the outdoors and access fresh fruits and vegetables in the neighborhood,” Gregory Ripps, president of the Highland Park Neighborhood Association, said in a release. “We welcome people who grow their own fruits and vegetables, as well as crafters, to sell at the market. The Highland Park Neighborhood Association is happy to play a role in making this possible.”
The farmers market runs from 9 am-1 pm. For more information or to be a volunteer, head to the Highland Park Neighborhood Facebook page.
