In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8, 2021, the Texas Farmers’ Market (TFM) is hosting an online discussion with some of their fabulous female vendors from across the world who participate in the market. The virtual Zoom panel discussion is free to anyone interested and will be held from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. The virtual panel will showcase five panelists, discussing what it means to be a part of the Texas food community here in Austin.
As a bonus, Texas Farmers’ Market has partnered with our good friends at Antonelli’s Cheese Shop to offer a special $20 cheese plate to enjoy during the discussion. The cheese flight will feature four kinds of cheese, four food pairings, and will include some of Texas Farmers’ Market vendors. Plus, to make it even sweeter, 10% of every plate sold goes to support the Texas Farmers’ Market Ag Producer Support Fund, which is now so important to assist Central Texas farmers and ranchers due to losses from the Winter storm.
