Galveston’s Own Farmers Market brings locally grown produce, prepared foods, and edible farm products to residents of Galveston and the surrounding areas every Sunday morning. We strive to foster a greater sense of community; all while supporting farmers + producers, and connecting individuals with their local food economy.

About
Founded in 2012, Galveston’s Own Farmers Market is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization operating every Sunday morning on Galveston Island in coastal Texas.

Our weekly outdoor market provides a direct connection to vendors creating and growing fresh whole foods, including farms, ranches, bakeries, cheese-makers and specialty-foods producers.

GOFM is operated by a paid manager, all-volunteer Board of Directors and countless efforts and hours from volunteers in the community. Our organization is funded solely by vendor fees, and receives no city, state or federal funding.
