Who is at the Market this Week

We do our best to maintain this list accurately, but unforeseeable conditions like weather may prevent a vendor from attending the SFC Farmers' Market.

SFC FARMERS' MARKET DOWNTOWN

Saturdays 9am-1pm at Republic Square Park

Music »

Choctaw Wildfire

In a town brimming with talent, Choctaw Wildfire has quickly become one of Austin's must-see acts. While the band's raw intensity has captured the attention of the home town faithful, the intimacy and intrinsic beauty of Charlie Pierce's songs lie at the core of Choctaw Wildfire's appeal. There is great power in life's simple truths and Choctaw Wildfire proves this with every performance.

SFC FARMERS' MARKET AT SUNSET VALLEY

Music »

Vanessa Lively

Austin, Texas based songwriter Vanessa Lively creates an eclectic blend of folk & world music that beautifully join heartfelt lyrics with soulful vocals. Drawing on a compelling mix of tempos and styles that embrace hints of urban, world, Latin, funk and pop, Lively’s songs fully capture her compassionate nature and love of community. Margaret Moser of The Austin Chronicle describes Vanessa’s music as “folk music on fire with worldly rhythms and a Latin pulse.”

Madison

When it comes to my music, I am not particularly faithful to any one genre. As I write, I’m going back and forth between listening to Michael Jackson and Italian opera music (just to give you an idea!). I try to incorporate my love of lyrics and story telling with catchy pop hooks. So I guess I’m this over-smiley, super passionate country + pop + folk singer.
