City Seeks Community Feedback on
Equity Indicators Survey by April 2
The City of Houston is launching the Equity Indicators project by asking for your comments to one important question: What makes a community equitable?
Houston is the most diverse city in the nation, but despite the strength of our diversity and multiculturalism, Houstonians experience vast racial and ethnic disparities. The Equity Indicators Project will facilitate broader conversations on equity and inclusion, take active steps to measure disparities, and have leaders across multiple sectors be held accountable for taking action to increase equitable outcomes for all Houstonians.
The city is seeking feedback from community members to ensure that this project is reflective of Houston's diversity and multiculturalism. Click here to share your thoughts on what makes a community equitable until April 2.

Revitalized Houston Farmers Market
"You can find nearly any fruit, vegetable, legume, spice, herb, seed, coffee, chile, or meat that a recipe might require."

Paper City Magazine recently featured the revitalized Houston Farmers Market at 2520 Airline Drive. The article states, "The oldest farmers market in the city, formed in 1937, was purchased in 2017 by local commercial real estate firm MLB Capital Partners, which devoted the last four years to revitalizing the 18 acres.

"More than 35 local shops and wholesale vendors operate at Houston Farmers Market 363 days a year (save for Christmas and New Year’s Day), so you can find nearly any fruit, vegetable, legume, spice, herb, seed, coffee, chile, or meat that a recipe might require."
