I’m not sure what it says about me that I usually sit around and watch a documentary each Sunday. I’ll watch anything, it doesn’t matter – social documentaries, exposés, military, political, historical, animal… any -al, really. Anyway, today I watched 2008′s Food Inc, and two things happened: 1) I wondered why I hadn’t seen it yet… it’s pretty well-viewed, I think, at least up there with Supersize Me and Fahrenheit 911; and 2) I immediately Googled “farmer’s market katy tx.” Every day I am grateful to have a friend like Google.
There are a lot of things I really enjoy about living in Katy (giant trees galore; wide, bike-friendly sidewalks; awesome hidden restaurants). TIL there’s a farmer’s market at La Centerra every Saturday from about 8a to noon, and there’s also Katy Fresh Produce Market at 5026 East Third St. in Old Katy (10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Mondays, closed Tuesdays).
I’ve made a lot of food-related changes over the past year trending towards healthier nutrition and food sources, but man, this movie gave that a whole new urgency. I have a great co-worker who is pretty passionate about food (you may have read her work), and that constant cognizance is very encouraging and easy to adopt. Speak your passions, people! Sometimes someone listens.
Coming to the point, I fully intend to investigate one of these farmer’s markets next Saturday, buy tons of fresh and delicious repast, and report back faithfully. If you’ve ever taken a look at Camden’s Katy communities, or are a current resident at one, a) you should have told me about this, and b) I will let you know what I find!
