Saturday at the Farmer's Market!

Summer morning at the Houston Farmer's Market:

Went to Caninos [2520 Airline Dr.Houston, TX 77009] early on Saturday morning and will definately be back. I feel like I only saw a portion of it and could definately explore for hours! I walked away with an eggplant, a jar of strawberry preserves, 4 nectarines, 4 kiwi fruits and a large rosemary bush and spent less that 10$.

"A favorite of local chefs, Canino's is open every day with plenty of fresh produce. Canino's is a giant farmers' market that has been offering a tremendous selection of fresh fruits, vegetables, beans, vinegars, and even milk and eggs for years. There's no place else in the city where you can buy a farm-fresh pineapple (in bulk, if you wish) at 6 a.m. any day of the week, year-round. Don't want to drive to the country for those juicy Hempstead watermelons? Canino's has them, along with a way to spend all those pennies you've been hoarding (jalapeños, anyone?). Go to the very back for the best deals and the freshest hard-to-find items. Whatever you do, don't miss the tamales. Like the rest of the goods, they're tremendously fresh, and you'll see them only rarely at the other markets.Open every day 6 a.m.-8:30 p.m. "
