Celebrate National Farmer's Market Week because fresh is always best

Join us this Saturday at the Nacogdoches Farmer’s Market to celebrate National Farmer’s Market Week. When it comes to buying produce, fresh is always best. Fresh produce is more flavorful than any other variety, and only frozen produce comes close in nutrition. Nothing could be fresher than foods straight from the producer, and Nacogdoches’ Farmer’s market brings them to you week after week year round. National Farmers' Market Week, which runs through Aug. 8, is the ideal time to discover the advantages of buying farm fresh foods. If you can’t make it on Saturday, be sure to join us on Wednesday mornings.
