Spend your Saturday morning experiencing Houston’s freshest produce at the new location for Urban Harvest Farmers Market at St. John’s School off Buffalo Speedway.

Still set in Upper Kirby but relocated to the corner of Buffalo Speedway and Westheimer, Urban Harvest has become Houston’s largest and most popular farmers market since getting their start back in 2004.

Every Saturday year-round more than 60 vendors set up shop and offer a variety of produce, meats, cheeses, freshly baked goods and more. Under the direction of an all-volunteer board, the Urban Harvest Market has organically grown from humble beginnings to employ a full-time staff and plenty of volunteers.

And with the new location, the market is on track to further grow their footprint, add 600 parking spaces, and allow for increased programming.

The Urban Harvest Experience

Packed with fresh and organic produce from new and multi-generation farmers, Urban Harvest has become the place to be on Saturday mornings for those looking for the farm-to-market experience.

You’ll find local artisans crafting everything from seasonal jam and crusty bread to luxurious soaps and fresh-cut flowers, stands to fulfill your morning needs with hot coffee and breakfast tacos (and cupcakes!), live music, and the occasional demos from Houston’s top culinary talent.
