Poteet is a pretty small town in Texas. The people are all very friendly but the location isn't really local. They do have a small local store in town, but if you are looking for a Walmart you would have to drive somewhere else. All in all, it is a nice town to live in if you don't mind the hot Texas air and a few snacks here and there.

I lived in Poteet for most of my life. It is a nice, quiet town but not much goes on around here. Since Poteet is not overly population, everyone knows everyone. In April, many people attend the Strawberry Festival, which is a bit overpriced. Other than that, you won't hear much about this small town.
The City of Poteet Texas reminds me of home and old fashion values. The Annual Poteet Strawberry Festival attracts thousands of visitors each year and is growing. Some of the sweetest strawberry's are grown and sold only in Poteet Texas and until recently attracted more visitors than ever before. The towns rich history in Latino Tradition and food alike allows for a favorable environment. There is no better way to bask in a spring day on a ranch at an old fashioned carnival, bank stands, petting zoo, and great food as our family enjoys.
