- San Antonio is the sixth best city for farmers markets in the United States, according to study.
Researchers compared the metros on factors including their overall number of markets, number of organic markets and their walkability. After assigning “weights” to each factor, they gave each city a score of 0 to 50 — the higher the number the better — to determine its ranking.
Los Angeles grabbed the No. 1 slot with a score of 42.9, while Portland, Oregon (with 29.9) and Houston (with 29.8) grabbed the next two slots, respectively. The Alamo City scored 24.4.
The East Coast isn't exactly a mecca for farmer's markets, according to the report. Buffalo, New York, ranked as the worst city, holding a dismal score of 5.9. Other East Coast spots, including Virginia Beach and Orlando, Florida, landed high on its list of cities with the worst markets.
San Antonio and Houston were the only Texas cities mentioned on either list.
