Round Rock Honey

Round Rock Honey owners Konrad and Elizabeth Bouffard take the greatest pride in producing only the purest Texas wildflower honey, emphasizing quality over quantity in every step of the harvest. Their hives are located across Central Texas, which gives our honey a rich taste unique to the state. They don't gauge our success by the quantity of honey produced, or even by how much we sell. Their focus is always on the quality our processes, our packaging, our customer's experiences, and of course, our honey.

The Bouffards believe in their honey so much that if you ever have a question, just look on the back of our bottle. You’ll find their names and phone number. They love to talk about honey, and are available to answer any questions you may have. From field to hive to table, let Round Rock Honey sweeten your life.

At Round Rock Honey, they're obsessed with the engineering prowess of honeybees. They do their best to mimic their magnificent process as they strive to produce a superior honey. The honeybees collect nectar from over 90 different sites in order to capture the vast array of pollens in all of the Central Texas "microclimates". Before bottling Round Rock Honey they don't heat or filter the honey, instead they harvest the hives then separate the honey by centrifuge at room temperature to preserve all the natural enzymes, pollen and floral essences honeybees put into it, creating the highest quality flavor. Round Rock Honey tests their honey with three different independent labs several times each year to insure pollutants never find their way into your favorite natural sweetener.  In layman's terms, Round Rock honey is 100% pure and raw Texas honey.  Stop by the booth at Farmers Market at Imperial for a sample!
Did You Know?

The average supermarket carrot travels 2,000 miles from field to table. USDA surveys suggest that most farmers' market produce travels less than 50 miles to market.

Imperial BBQ
Imperial BBQ has been busy with competitions this summer, but we are glad to welcome them back to their home at Farmers Market at Imperial this Saturday.
If you’re looking for authentic Texas barbeque, you’ve come to the right place. At Imperial Barbeque they’ll give you the attention and personal service you’ll come to expect and enjoy.  At Imperial Barbeque it all starts with the wood they use and their delicious homemade barbecue sauce.  Imperial BBQ personally hand cuts, split all the oak and pecan wood that we use to smoke our meats.  Their dry rubs have evolved through the years with successfully competing in cook-offs since 1994 and many long hours of practice to give you the flavor that everyone enjoys. They offer traditional 100% smoked Texas barbeque that is prepared with hard work and personal pride.  These are very important components when cooking Texas barbeque!
Imperial Barbeque is a famliy owned and operated mobile catering service that is located in Sugar Land Texas. Let them put their experience to work for you.
