COLMESNEIL – On Sundays, an opportunity for good produce acquisitions and good fellowship has opened up in Colmesneil.

A farmers’ market has launched in the Colmesneil High School student parking lot, located at 610 West Elder Street (FM 256 West), and runs from noon until 5 p.m. each Sunday. The organizers of the market created it as an opportunity for farmers, as well as artisan vendors, to come together to sell everything from fresh produce and baked goods to handcrafted products.

“It’s a great place to support and strengthen our local community, savor delicious food and to meet new people,” said Courtney McHenry, an organizer behind the market.

McHenry said the market, which has been going on for a few weeks now, will draw more vendors with better weather.

The coming market for this Sunday will also involve a drive for bedding supplies for Sleep in Heavenly Peace. According to McHenry, for everyone who donates bedding sets and/or pillows, they will be entered in a raffle. The winner will receive a gift box from the market vendors, and from other small businesses in the community.

For patrons of the market, the organizers ask that they park across from the student parking lot or on the side of the street, as the market area will be roped off to ensure for the safety of vendors, customers and children. Anyone with questions about becoming a vendor can contact McHenry or Ashley Marshall by Facebook message, or by texting her at 409-202-0569.
