It has some growing to do, but will most likely expand as the word gets out to local and regional producers.
I just hope it doesn't devolve into another flea-market-on-steroids types of things - it seems like so many events here do.

As long as Kit Goldsbury is behind this project, that will never happen. Period!

This whole project (Pearl Complex) has been in the planning and making for close to ten years. It's so great to see that architectural treasure being "recycled" into something wonderful.

I looked when we moved here from California and went to one in New Braunfels and San Marcos, and the one in San Marcos sort of near that University, was quite a bit bigger and had some great veggies, breads, baked goods, even plants. But I'm sure you're looking for much closer. Rita's Natural Foods Market in New Braunfels has some organic stuff they grow on their own lil farm and bring in each week too, but that's just a lil part of their small fantastic market-with greatt prices. We started growing our own, but with kids, it's just a lil too hard for me to keep up with those darn weeds.
