This Week at the Markets

Each week, SFC brings Central Texas two farmers’ markets featuring an incredible variety of produce, prepared foods, artisan goods, music, and activities. We encourage you to check each market and find the one that best fits your shopping needs. In the meantime, check out a few highlights of what will be at the market this coming week. Happy Shopping!

Fresh And New

SFC Farmers’ Market Downtown, Sat. May 19th from 9am-1pm:

  • Fiora De Zucca: It’s that magical time of year when springtime veggies pop off the vine and right onto our plates. Animal Farm has the first squash blossoms of the year, perfect for delicate sautés, herbaceous omelettes, succulent pizza toppings or stuffed with goat cheese and lightly fried. If eating flowers isn’t your thing, you can always pick up a bouquet to take home and gaze lovingly at all week.
  • Jerky Artists: ATX Jerky considers themselves not merely purveyors of additive and preservative free jerky, but artisans of dried meat in all it’s forms. Try out spicy peppered, sweet teriyaki, bacon flavored or unflavored (perfect for your doggo companions.)
  • New Vendor Alert! Get smashed this weekend with our newest vendor, Citrusnade! They crush fresh lemons, limes, oranges and grapefruits and mix them with all natural sweeteners and sparkling water.

SFC Farmers’ Market at Sunset Valley, Sat. May 19th from 9am-1pm:

  • You’re Grounded: Looking for some of the best produce in Central Texas? Swing by Middle Ground Farms’ booth and stock up! Farmer Lorig still has a bevvy of delicious green beans and blackberries, and is adding summer squash and cherry tomatoes to the table this week. Stop by early to get the goods before they’re gone.
  • Cool Ranch: Have you met the new meat at market? Swing by the western end to grab some beef from Jon and Amanda of Copper Creek Ranch; they’ve got steaks, oxtail, ground beef, and more!

SFC FARMERS' MARKET AT SUNSET VALLEY

Saturdays 9am-1pm at Toney Burger Center

Music »

Starting things off from 9am to 11am is Ethan Azarian! Ethan Azarian and sometime accompanist Jeff Johnston's richly textured strain of songwriting first emerged when the two performed together in the Orange Mothers. Since then, the Austin musicians have whittled ever closer to the essence of emotions that words usually fail to capture. Whether transmuting a sense of well-being or of queasy foreboding, the primary characteristic of these songs remains overwhelming humanness.

Taking over the tent from 11am on is the Clint Small Middle School Jazz Band! Come hear the young talent play their groovy tunes!

Activities »

Our friends from TKO Puppets will be back with us at Sunset Valley this weekend. The show starts at 10:30, find them on the end of market next to the Imagination Playground! TKO Puppets delights spectators with original productions featuring unique characters. They encourage audience participation by engaging the young and young-at-heart with language arts, music and compelling stories.

Taste the Place will be offering delicious seasonal samples of the vendors' offerings. Swing by and grab a bite of the good stuff!
