It’s finally spring! Spring in Texas is one of the best times of the year. Flowers are blooming, the air is warm and welcoming, and everywhere you go you see active Austinites out and about enjoying the fresh air. With spring also comes a whole world of booming farmers markets set up all across the city! Fresh herbs, produce, and essential oils only top the list of the wide range of products that our local venders offer.
The live music, amazing smells, and delicious treats for you and your kids (or Furbabies) puts visits to the farmers market on the top of my to-do list every week. Here is my guide to some of the best ones in Austin and surrounding areas.
Hosting several of Austin’s Farmers Markets, Sustainable Food Center makes the top of this list. Their markets feature live music, interactive kids activities, and acceptance of food benefit programs such as SNAP, WIC, and Double Dollar Incentive Program
“All SFC Farmers’ Markets are producer-only, which means that farmers may only sell what they grow, and other vendors can only sell products that they themselves produce. This is our assurance to our customers that they are supporting local farmers and are purchasing the best food for themselves and their families.” Via Sustainablefoodcenter.org
