NEW MARKETS - Houston! We have a new Market in Midtown and longtime Urban Harvest Market is at new digs (get it? :)) and is growing! Join us as we navigate a new route, to a new market, for an old favorite!
Grocery stores are so overrated! You drive to them. Carry your little bags in, and push around a cart. Maybe it's your lucky day and there are even some cookie samples left over in the bin…BORING! Instead of your typical shopping routine, why don't you pedal with us this Saturday for a fun weekend ride that will leave your taste buds and souls enriched and support our wonderful Houston Farmers Markets. Who knows what new food or drink you may discover!
First, we'll wake ourselves up with the delicious aroma of a leisurely Onion Creek coffee. After our caffeine kicks in, we'll cruise off to the markets to shop for fresh produce, sauces, jams, and delicious baked bread. This 12-15 mile ride lasts about three hours, so bring plenty of water and a backpack to carry all your goodies home!
Plan on sticking around after the ride to enjoy lunch at Onion Creek Cafe. They are a locally owned eatery with great food, atmosphere, brews and friends!
No bike? No worries!
