Conroe, Texas - Farmer’s Markets are gaining in popularity throughout small towns, and Conroe is no exception. Every 1st Thursday through October the Isaac Conroe Farmer’s Market will be at Founder’s Park on the corner of Metcalf and Main (by the Owen Theatre) from 4:00-8:00pm. The public is invited to browse the selection of fresh grown fruits, vegetables, spices, and handmade products from local vendors in our area.

Summer is a tough time to have outdoor markets, but in coordination with the Conroe Summer Concert Series every First Thursday at Heritage Park, the Conroe Downtown Area Association (CDAA) have been working on a way to grow the downtown community and create added awareness of all there is to do in the local area.

This is a great opportunity for people to explore the theatre, the unique shops, the art gallery, restaurants, entertainment, and events that keep Conroe a fun place to live”, said Rodney Pool, owner of the Corner Pub.

This coming Thursday, July 2 there will be new added vendors with something for everyone. Some of the vendors include:

MYOKAS- natural balsamic vinegars for cooking, and dipping with bread
Texas Gypsy-handmade soaps, lotions, mustache wax, lip balm, and bath salts
The Egg Lady-fresh eggs
Katherine Marks-handmade sterling silver jewelry
Tina Lockhart-photography from the Conroe Art League
ShaKa Studios- local furniture-maker
Wicked Pig Metal Works-creative metal signs and décor with custom designed signs
Cassia Aromatics-pure grade essential oils, scrubs, candles, and perfume
In addition assorted jams, jellies, baked goods, and salsa will be accompanied by Bluegrass music as patrons stroll through the booths. Local downtown merchants will also have their stores open until 8:00pm.

We are excited to bring local artists to visit the local Downtown Conroe stores. Come shop, stroll the galleries and Farmer’s Market, then walk a couple blocks down and enjoy the concert”, said Leo Harris, owner of Conroe Coffee and Coordinator of the Farmer’s Market.

The First Thursday Concert series will begin at 7:00pm with Terri Hendrix/John Evans performing at Heritage Place Park 500 Metcalf, rain or shine!
