Farmers Market Downtown On Buffalo Bayou

Anyone have pics of the Old Farmers Market downtown?

My Dad had place there in mid-50's.

The Water Melon Flats (big concrete lot) backed up to Buffalo Bayou, heard stories of finding dead winos that drowned there.

You can still see them (at least my last trip about 5 years ago) on 45 N to the right just before you cross over the Bayou

It occupied a large area, what is now known as Market Square.

It closed in 59 and most moved over to the Harris County Farmers Mkt 2520 Airline or the Market off Wayside Dr.
