Not Exactly True to the Forum....

This past Friday on ride back from Galveston a friend and I stopped by Frobergs Farmers Market in Alvin. It was late in the day and the selection was not that great but I did pickup a cantelope, pineapple, and a few peaches. I noted while in there that much of their produce had Del Monte or other labels on it which lead me to wonder if there are still any 'true' farmers markets? I've not been to the big market which I think was on Airline in many decades and was wondering if it was still true to form? A google search also turned up a hit or two just inside the loop, but nothing in the Richmond, Rosenberg, Wharton areas. Tell me Hounds, where can a person go to buy really good produce other than Central Market or Whole Foods in a farmers market type atmosphere?
