Eat fresh, eat local has become a mantra when it comes to food in Houston. That should be easy to do when you consider that, along with Florida and California, Texas has the longest growing season in the country.
Farmers’ markets have sprung up all over the place. They can be found in parking lots at Rice University, shopping centers and restaurants, around the reflection pool at City Hall, at Discovery Green or in many neighborhoods.
No matter what is there, the good news is that the markets are getting people out, making them think about what they eat. The only thing that is a bit troublesome is that the prices are steep which means that these fresh and local products are not accessible to all, and that makes you wonder how we can do a better job positively impacting the eating habits of a obese country.
What are your thoughts about the way we eat?
