The Houston Farmers Market on Airline Drive traces its beginnings back to the early 1940’s. The market plans began under unique circumstances when farmers from the agricultural areas surrounding Houston experienced difficulties finding venues to sell their produce. The farmers took action and launched a campaign to acquire commitments from 500 of their own to exclusively utilize a proposed cooperative market for the sale of their goods. This, along with monetary investments, was achieved quickly. On July 14, 1941 the Farmer’s Cooperative Marketing Association of Houston, Texas acquired 9.5 acres to begin its operations.
