- Home and gift: Heirloom tomato plants, basil plants, wood bowls, bottle stoppers, rolling pins, and more.
The Historic Longview Farmers Market is located on the site of the former Kelly Plow Works (at the corner of Cotton and High streets), which was an important part of early Longview's development and growth. There is a Texas Historical Marker located on the lot at Center Street.
The Historic Longview Farmers Market is a project of Preservation Longview whose mission is to restore, preserve and promote historic Longview. Preservation Longview wanted to create a vibrant and accessible market where local farmers and craftsmen may showcase and sell their goods and products directly to the public; preserve Texas’ unique agricultural heritage by educating the community about local and sustainable food resources; and acknowledge Longview’s historic link to agriculture.
