The Corpus Christi Downtown Farmers’ Market was our first step in this journey. After selling out of produce in less than an hour at our very first Market we knew there was huge need to fill.  Seven years, three locations, dozens of vendors and thousands of customers later, The Corpus Christi Downtown Farmers’ Market has become a Bayfront institution consistently bringing life, people and commerce to Downtown.

“We’re celebrating our success the way we started: we’re throwing a huge party,” said Campbell. “This is a community-wide celebration of healthy lifestyle and downtown growth.”

“The [Corpus Christi Downtown Farmers’] Market is a success because we create a community-building event every week,” said CC Downtown Farmers’ Market Manager Cyndi Garcia. “The Market is an access point for locally-grown food, of course, but with the food trucks, bar, music, dance , cooking demos, and educational opportunities all right on our beautiful Bayfront, it’s a gathering spot downtown for living a healthy lifestyle.”
