Upcoming Events

One of the primary goals of the FBVFM is to host a booth at every festival and fair in town, but we also try to provide an informational booth at our regularly scheduled farmers' markets. Both are great opportunities to spread the good news about our growing market as well as the amazing benefits of a local diet. Here's a list of both regular and special upcoming events:


Winter Holiday Celebration
Saturday, December 18, 2010 (8:00-12:00)

Time for our annual Winter Holiday Celebration. We'll need volunteers to help man the info booth, the kids activity booth, and the raffle booth. Email Nancy to sign up.


Farmers' Market
  • Saturdays (8AM - 12PM) in the Brazos County Health Department parking lot in Bryan

Interested in manning a booth at one of these events? Help make our booth a great success and spread the good news about eating locally in the BCS by volunteering today!



Welcome to the Friends of the Brazos Valley Farmers Market blog site!

Our mission is two-fold: 1) to spread the good news about the Brazos Valley Farmers' Market and the wonderful benefits of eating a local diet; and 2) to increase community involvement in our market through a variety of volunteer opportunities.

I am currently hosting an informational booth every Saturday at our regularly scheduled Brazos Valley Farmers Market from 8AM - 12 PM in the Health Department Parking Lot (corner of Texas Ave and William J. Bryan Pkwy). Already, I've had the opportunity to meet new people, sign up new market vendors, and distribute informational brochures on the benefits of a local diet. Both vendors and customers are excited about the amazing potential of "Friends" and have offered support and endless ideas on ways to promote the market in our community.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg. The Brazos Valley Farmers Market is growing - not only is it a wonderful source of fresh, local food, it's a community event where friends and family gather. But so many in our community don't yet know we exist. We'd like to change that. We're full of ideas and enthusiasm, but we need your help. Join the Friends of the Brazos Valley Farmers' Market by contacting me today, and help make a difference in our community.
