Last weekend I visited Boggy Creek Farm for the first time. If you’ve never been there, it’s a fairly large farm considering it’s in the middle of the city, on the east side on Lyons road. All of the food the farm produces is organic, and you can see what’s for sale every Saturday and Wednesday. I went on Saturday, and got there shortly after it opened at 9AM – I’ve heard that they can run out of food quickly so you should get there early. They have a nice selection of peas, squash, herbs, salad, okra, peppers, cucumber, and eggplant, as well as some fresh bread, eggs, and dairy products. It’s fun to just walk around and look at the gardens and chickens and then pick up some fresh produce.
I didn’t take pictures of the stand area where they were selling food, but I bought some zucchini that were really good quality – not dented all over with a dry aging skin like the ones at HEB – the ones I picked up were really plump with no signs of rough handling, and the skin was taught like they had just been picked and not sitting around very long.
Here are some pics of the farm:
