Tejas Local and Fresh: Canino Produce – Farmer’s Market
Located in Independence Heights Canino’s Local Produce and Farmer’s market is a true hidden gem. I am over the moon since discovering this place. The fresh fruit and vegetables are so radiant and the atmosphere unlike anything I ever thought would be right in my back yard.
FRUITS & NUTS
Canino’s, Houston’s only farmers market, is know for it’s vast assortments of nuts, seasonal fruit, spices, vegetables and fresh herbs. Most prices at the farmer’s market rival your local grocer and offer a better quality! The “nut shop” at the main market’s main entrance is my favorite. You can purchase your nuts in bulk, shelled or not. Canino’s will also husk nuts not purchased at the market. Got nuts? Bring your own nuts and they will help you out.
Most anything can be found at the Farmer’s Market. The only thing we couldn’t find was fresh sage, but why did my mom need that anyway? The best part about the market are the farmers! Some offer samples prior to making a purchase.
CANDY & SWEETS
In addition to the fruits and vegetables, I love Mexican dried fruits and candies. The chili mangoes are my favorite. Every time I visit Canino’s Local Produce and Farmer’s market I purchase a 1/4 lb bag. Usually by the time I pack up and head home I have eaten the whole bag. Additionally, the are fried chili limon peanuts and spicy-sweet tamarind fruit come in as a close 2nd and 3rd. I’d never tried tamarind fruit, only tamarind margaritas.
HOME REMEDY TEAS
In our current society homeopathic remedies are becoming more popular. The Farmer’s Market sales homeopathic teas that assist with depression, ulcers , alcoholism, etc. I am totally not a doctor. This is not medical advice. If you suffer from something less complex like allergies, try some of the tea before spending all your cash on over the counter meds.
Canino is Open 6am to 8pm daily except Thanksgiving, Christmas, December 25 & December 26. Parking can be a bit crazy but there is a lot available for guest parking.
