Market festivities planned throughout year
The Rice Farmers Market is a great place to shop, but is also a fun place to celebrate. At least five times throughout the year, large festivities are planned that feature chef demonstrations, local brewery samplings and market giveaways. Of course, all year long, our wonderful vendors offer fresh, local food that is not only good for you, but good for the community.
Look for the following events: Fat Tuesday, Springfest, Summerfest, Oktoberfest and a special holiday market
Rain or Shine
We really are open even if it is raining (just not during an electrical storm). So grab an umbrella and come shopping! The market only closes one Tuesday each year – between Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
Neighborhood and Rice Student Community promotions
Rice undergraduate students are welcome to use Tetra points at the market! A great deal on fresh, local food.
