Farm-To-Table Organic Market

Texas Historic Marker 3440, known as Montalvo House, was built in 1887.  At the time it was built, the property on which it stands was home to a hand-built rock well (still in existence today), an orchard, cottage gardens, and associated farm animals.  As of today, only 4 city lots remain. Given this historical context, The Montalvo House 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization has chosen to sponsor a Farm-To-Table Organic Market at the front of the property.  Held every Saturday from 8am-2:00pm, the market brings fresh local and organic farm produce to a USDA classified "Food Desert," provides a retail outlet for over 12 small, local Texas producers, provides employment opportunity in a region with a 24% poverty rate, and provides income to the nonprofit for essential overhead expenses such as electricity, water and insurance.
