Aaron Menke started his first farmers market in January 2018 in Katy, Texas. In 2020 Aaron and his wife, Liz, decided to build a business out of their hobby.
The grand opening day to their new market was blocked by the lockdown of March 2020. Furthermore, the rescheduled opening day was on the same weekend as the 2nd lockdown in June 2020. However, at that point the business was approved as an "essential" activity and they were able to help locals provide for their families during the pandemic.
In the last 3 years Aaron has worked with billion dollar real estate companies and affluent residential companies to establish local markets that help local family businesses thrive and partnering properties gain foot traffic. Aaron has started eight markets in the Houston area and helped family businesses bring in an estimated half a million dollars collectively. Each market is designed to be family friendly, lift up the local economy and the people living in the community.
