In the meantime, here are the answers to our most common questions: 

Q: Is the "Friends" of the Brazos Valley Farmers' Market different from the Brazos Valley Farmers' Market itself?

A: The Friends of the Brazos Valley Farmers' Market is a completely autonomous group from the market with it's own board/management, separate funding, and different (although at times overlapping) volunteers. The "Friends" group's purpose is to support and promote the market in things such as booths at local festivals and fairs for which the market itself doesn't have the volunteer base. It is at these booth locations that we distribute free literature on a wide range of topics like the benefits of a local diet, where and when our Farmers' Market meets, and shopping tips/recycling ideas for the market.

Q: Is my donation tax deductible?

A: Unfortunately, no. We are a brand new organization and have not yet applied for the 501(c)3 status with the IRS. However, know that your donations and membership fees are going towards printing valuable educational brochures that promote the market and encourage people to eat locally.

Q: Where do I send my donation?

A: Donations can be mailed to:
