Each Saturday morning, local growers and producers gather to peddle their wares at the Sugar Land Imperial Farmers Market. Located near Highway 90 and Highway 6 by the old Imperial Sugar Mill, the market is right in front of the mill, making a nice historical backdrop for the venders.
Admission is free but be prepared to carry out several bags of goodies. We saw everything from locally grown vegetables to honey, coffee, ethnic foods and sauces as well as kettle corn and other sweets. We bought an incredible bottle of peach infused vinegar for $15 that was my favorite of all the things we sampled. Patty bought some Indian potato and pea curry samosas. There were crafts as well including ceramics, weavings, and woodcarvings. There was even a Golden Retriever Dog Rescue group with 6 of the cutest retrievers you’ve ever seen.
Here’s a shot of the purple bell pepper I bought for a dollar, as well as a slideshow of some of the sights at the market. (All photos shot with my iPhone5)
