Spring Forward March 7th at SFC Farmers' Market at the Triangle
Sustainable Food Center (SFC) Farmers’ Market at The Triangle springs forward to 4pm - 8pm on Wednesday, March 7th. The market located near 46th and Lamar at Triangle Park will be open from 4pm - 8pm through September. Fall and winter hours are 3pm - 7pm, October through February.
“March 7th marks our change to ‘Picnic in the Park’ season hours at the farmers’ market,” says SFC Farmers’ Market Director, Suzanne Santos, “to encourage shoppers not only to shop from the farmers for their fresh produce, but to also enjoy the relatively mild weather this spring and have a picnic at Triangle Park from market vendors’ foods while listening to live music.”
SFC’s mission is to cultivate a healthy community by strengthening the local food system and improving access to nutritious, affordable food. SFC institutes a number of educational and accessible programs at the markets, including the SNAP Lone Star program, farmers’ product tasting tent, chef’s demos, gardening workshops, etc. SFC is a local 501 (c)(3) non-profit and has been involved in the community of growing food for over 35 years.
