I’m a big fan of farmers markets. In San Francisco, we have the wonderful Ferry Building Farmers Market which sets a high standard. It’s nice to see fresh markets turning up in more and more American cities and I was excited to discover that Houston, Texas is no exception. Hosted by Urban Harvest, the Houston Farmers Market at City Hall includes over 40 vendors of fresh produce, flowers, specialty foods and prepared lunch items. Set in front of City Hall along the Reflection Pool and surrounded by the towering buildings of Houston’s Skyline District, it’s a great location for nearby workers to enjoy a lunch break. (Note: The City Hall Farmers Market closes for the summer, but will be reopening on September 18th, 2013.)

This empanada by Lucia’s is made with a cauliflower and white truffle oil filling. It was a delicious treat as I walked around the market.
