OkraFest is Galveston's Own Farmers Market's annual party where we eat, drink and make merry--all in the name of community, local agriculture and good food for all. The funds raised support GOFM in our work towards bettering this community through connecting folks to better food, to better health and to one another.

Our 5th annual fundraiser is an epicurean feast with local foods sourced from nearby farms & food artisans, prepared by local chefs who deserve a spotlight. Served in the beautiful historic Garten Verein, the night is rounded off with a silent auction, raffle prizes, live music and plenty of drinks & food to share.

OkraFest proceeds fund the operations of our Food Access Programs like SNAP/FreshBucks & WIC Vouchers, our Young Gardeners Program (which turns schoolyards into vegetable-producing mini-farms and students into mini-farmers) and the continued management of the farmers marketplace that has become a beloved fixture of Galveston Island.
