GOFM Inaugural Market Mile Run Walk

April 24 @ 9:00 am

Galvestons Own Farmers Market

Runners & walkers of all levels, ages & speeds are welcome to participate. Choose to run or take a leisurely stroll through the neighborhood & stop at the notable historical spots identified by Galveston Unscripted that we’ll have posted for you to read & enjoy. We encourage you to sprint the route as fast you can or grab a stroller, dog leash & a coffee for an amble with friends (& the chance to make new ones!)

At the finish line, join the big post-race market party with live music from PB N’ Jam Jar, local treats & drinks, and of course, our weekly farmers market!

We’ve long daydreamed about a funrun that brings together folks in the name of neighborhood connection, health & outdoor fun, but the true catalyst behind the Market Mile is one of our long-time vendors, David Sabot, who passed away in 2021 from Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

David Sabot was an avid runner and a Race Director. He managed the ‘Run For Health 5K’ for many years while vending microgreens at GOFM with his wife at Galveston’s Own Farmers Market. David’s attitude about life and health rings in our hearts as we honor his memory with this inaugural Market Mile.

Proceeds will benefit Galveston’s Own Farmers Market’s Food Access Programming, including our SNAP-matching & WIC voucher initiatives. David was an avid supporter of these programs that aim to bring good food to all.
