The Woodlands Farmer’s Market at Grogan ‘s Mill was set up as “The Grogan’s Mill Farmer’s Market” in 2008, a weekly community event funded by the Mill Village Association of Grogan. The market is open at Grogan’s Mill Center on Saturdays from 8 am-12 pm. A farmer’s market is a physical retail marketplace that produces and sells food directly to consumers through farmers. Farmers’ markets usually consist of stalls, tables, or stands where farmers sell their home-grown produce, live animals and plants, and often cooked foods and beverages.
The market adheres to high standards which require all agricultural and craft vendors to develop or produce the good they sell. Each of the vendors of prepared food shall use a commercial kitchen when preparing their product. Like many countries around the world, the farmers’ markets are representative of local culture and economy. The market size may be only a few stalls, or it may be as wide as several blocks in town. Because of their existence, they seem to be a little less tightly controlled than the shops producing retail.
The Woodlands Farmers’ Market has relatively affordable foods, treats for the big kitties, organic vegetables, great blade and knife sharpening, specialty plants, soaps, gift products, organic meats, home-made pasta, local wine, Indian food from my favorite restaurant, in other words, anything for all.
A vast array of beef and pork items are available at Woodland farmers’ markets. Classic beef items comprise steaks, ground beef, jerky, and beef sausage of different forms. Typical pork products include bacon and sausage.
This market has evolved in the last couple of years. These are distinct from public markets, which are usually housed in permanent buildings, open all year round and sell a range of non-farmer / non-producer vendors, prepared goods, and non-food items.
