Farmers Markets in and around Austin, Texas
Pumpkin patches and apple picking are quintessential images of Fall. While Central Texas isn’t known for its apple orchards, there are plenty of other pickins at the local farmers market to make this a delicious time of year.
The Austin Farmers Market
The Austin Farmers Market is a project of the Sustainable Food Center and has locations on the corner of Fourth and Guadalupe downtown on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., The Triangle on Wednesdays from 4 to 8 p.m., and the Sunset Valley Farmers Market every Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the Tony Burger Center.
These markets feature locally grown fruits, vegetables, nuts, plants, flowers, herbs and even artisan cheese makers. Local ranchers also bring chicken, beef, lamb, goat, and pork. There is even bison available sometimes. It is the community of local farmers intersecting with the Austin community at large that make this a worthwhile outing. Of course, being Austin, live music is always part of the atmosphere.
Barton Creek Farmers Market
An offshoot of the Sunset Valley Farmers market is the Barton Creek Farmers Market that is located in the parking lot behind the Barton Creek Square Mall. This farmers market has many arts and crafts vendors, along with the locally grown produce and baked goods.
A sure sign of fall is the pumpkin patches that will soon be cropping up on church lawns and busy corners. Get out and enjoy the best of the season by buying goods that were cultivated in Austin and the surrounding Hill Country.
