Does living in the 3rd largest city make you feel like you… well – live in a big city? Ready to slow down and smell the orange blossoms – in your own backyard? Join us as we deliver the scoop on Houston’s local foodie “Green Scene”! Plus, you’ll meet some of the top purveyors in the Houston food scene who might just have a tasty morsel or two to share!

Scoop: Love your veggies and locally grown, organic produce? With farm cooperatives, daily farmers markets, and over 20 community gardens throughout the city, we will show you where to fill up your vegetable crisper. Plus, we’ll show you where you can pick your own tomatoes, blueberries, flowers and more.

Scoop: Did you know we have a dairy warehouse filled with artisan cheeses, right in the middle of town? Tastings are open to the public and every Friday and Saturday, pick up the map and learn more!

Scoop: Into microbrews? You have options in Houston. On Sundays you can visit the Craft Beer Garden and chill out to some local tunes. Or, any day of the week but Sunday you can stop by our hometown microbrewery, St. Arnold”s for a tour and a sip!

Scoop: Houston is now one of the top coffee ports in the world! You might get the chance to meet one of the Head roasters in town who delivers to his closer customers on his bicycle.

Scoop: Houston is the home for one of the largest and fastest growing networks of local businesses, organizations, initiatives and individuals all coming together to focus on quality of life issues?  Join us and get more info on how to get involved!

We’ll help you see the treasure trove in your own backyard and become a localvore before you know it!
