Conroe, TX (August 31, 2015) – The First Thursday Farmer’s Market in Downtown Conroe continues this coming Thursday, Sept. 3, from 4 – 8 p.m. with more than 50 vendors, several food trucks and live music from an impromptu group of banjo players led by crowd favorite Bob Hensley.
The Conroe Downtown Area Association (CDAA) sponsors the event which has continued to grow in popularity since its inception in June.
“We are now booking vendors for the street booth spaces on Metcalf. Founder’s Plaza is fully booked and the street will be closed off to accommodate the increase of vendors,” Leo Harris owner of Conroe Coffee said.
New vendors this month include: Texas Grass Fed Beef, Sweet Texas Treasures, Lynne’s Country Lane, Mannish Indian Food, and a new food truck-Griddlez Roadside Café (the newest generation in roadside dining. Burgers and More will be back again offering hamburgers, hot dogs, and soft drinks.
Additional produce vendors and pumpkins are still in demand and all inquiries can be directed to contact Conroe Coffee to reserve their space for this week or upcoming Farmer’s Market events. The CDAA has decided to expand the Farmer’s Market to every First Thursday throughout the year.
“The idea was to create something in collaboration with the First Thursday Concert Series to bring awareness to the downtown Conroe area and the merchants,” said Rodney Pool, owner of the Corner Pub and the President of the CDAA.
“The CDAA has generated a map of the Downtown Conroe area and a monthly calendar of events posted in key places throughout Conroe to keep both residents and tourists aware of the continued activity taking place in our historic area.” Maps and calendars will be available at the Farmers Market on Thursday.
As a bonus, The Greater Conroe Arts Alliance will be facilitating the unveiling of the third Legends Mural at 6:30 at the corner of Metcalf and Main during the First Thursday Farmer’s Market.
The final First Thursday Concert series will begin at 7 p.m. with the Fab 5 and Johnny and the Spinsations performing at Heritage Place Park 500 Metcalf, rain or shine!
