Despite this season being one of the driest and hottest on record for East Texas, the Historic Longview Farmers Market has delivered a wide variety of beautiful vegetables and other farm products to its customers each week since reopening in April. But with two months of triple digit heat, the farmers' gardens have come to a halt. The Historic Longview Farmers Market will be taking a short break and will reopen as soon as more produce is ready.

As I write this update, it is a scorching 104 degrees outside. The weekly weather forecast calls for another week of over 100 degree weather with the possibility of reaching 108 degrees. It is HOT! According to the US Drought Monitor, East Texas is experiencing extreme and exceptional drought conditions. 

The Historic Longview Farmers Market is not closed for a definitive time frame but will reopen as soon as more produce is ready. The market could possibly be back open in a couple of weeks or not until the fall. The reopening is dependent on mother nature. Please continue to check the market's website for updates and we hope to see there as soon as it reopens! 

The Historic Longview Farmers Market is located on Cotton St. between High St. and Center St. in downtown Longview, TX and is a project of Preservation Longview.
