BROWNSVILLE FARMERS' MARKET

         Open Saturdays

         9:00a-12:00noon

(Weather permitting, excludes some holidays)

Linear Park | Brownsville, Texas

The Farmers’ Market provides fresh produce in a food desert location, enhances the social aspect of building community, ensures access to local seasonal products in a low-income area of the city, and encourages entrepreneurship.

Brownsville Wellness Coalition’s Farmers’ Market, a bi-cultural tourist destination is located in the Mitte Cultural District and is one of only three certified markets to accept SNAP and WIC vouchers in the Rio Grande Valley.

This important designation creates inclusiveness and erases the stigma that farmers markets are for the affluent. The Market’s location in a park and its setting along a walking trail invite physical activities. Free yoga, Little Pretzel yoga for kids, and gym boot camps take place every Saturday. 

 

Because this is also a pet friendly market, the

entire family can spend quality time together in a healthful, supportive, and safe environment.

Currently, there are no public restrooms available at Linear Park.

Visitors are encouraged to bring reusable shopping bags.
