Houston Farmers Market coordinators report that the facility at the downtown Lone Star Plaza will continue operating this year from 7 a.m. to noon on Fridays, but will also be open Tuesdays from 3-7 p.m.

Officials said growers are behind because of this year’s unusually rough winter, but many should be selling produce by mid-April. A big “blowout” is planned for May 2 in conjunction with a three-day downtown festival that promises to be the biggest in a monthly series of Saturday events.

This year, the market will have new signs at the roadway. The signs were made with wood donated by Ed and Brenda Jarrett and painted by New Life staff members.
