The McAllen Farmers Market is hosting our monthly “Art At The Market” Event on Saturday, February 24 from 10 am to 1 pm.

It has been over a year since we started this monthly event with the idea of spreading the “market mentality” to a greater number of people each month. We live in a community that appreciates local, ethical, and sustainable products. In reality we associate those phrases to farming of organic local vegetables and fruits but at McAllen Farmers Market we think that should apply to local artisans and crafters. The Rio Grande Valley is home to many talented artists, so we aim to not only give them a venue to make their art available to the community but to give our community a chance to meet them. There is a certain joy in meeting the artisan that created the craft you purchase. In hearing their story of their journey in creating the product in front of them, you gain not only insight into the artist but also a more personal connection to the object itself.
