It may not feel like fall in Houston but fall is indeed upon us. Which means that Houston’s City Hall Farmers Market is back for the season starting Wednesday, September 20. The market, operated by Urban Harvest, is the perfect spot to grab lunch and catch a midday break in downtown Houston.

Open from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. every Wednesday through mid-December, the City Hall Farmers Market features more than 40 vendors offering prepared foods, artisanal bread, fresh produce, honey, and more. If lunch is what you’re after, you’ll have plenty of choices representative of Houston’s diverse cuisine. Some exciting additions to the market this season include Nepalese vendor Momo Sherpa Snacks, and Local Foods, which will bring its popular and tasty salads to the market. 

If you’re visiting town, make sure you plan to visit other local hotspots in the area using the Greenlink shuttle, Houston’s downtown bus service. The shuttle offers free rides to popular downtown attractions including Historic Market Square, Minute Maid Park, Discovery Green and City Hall. The city encourages those locals who live or work downtown to walk, bike via Houston Bike Share or take the Greenlink shuttle to the market. Metered and garage parking are available for those driving in from outside downtown.
