Lubbock needs a regular farmers market where we can get locally grown fresh produce. But until then we have the Spring Lubbock Downtown Farmers Market happening this Saturday. 

The semi-annual market is happening at 19th and Buddy Holly Avenue from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. this Saturday, May 5th.

According to the market's official Facebook page, local farmers, growers, and ranchers will share "the finest in local produce, meat, dairy, cheese. baked goods and arts. At this special preview market there will be many vendors with plants and seedlings for sale to plant in your backyard garden. We hope to see you there!"

So not only can you get some great food, but you can get some seeds to start your own backyard garden if you want.
