This upcoming weekend is a great time to stop by one of the two Texas Farmers’ Market locations in the Austin area to support local farmers and ranchers. This week is National Farmers Market and not only are you getting some of the most flavorful and unique products, but you’re giving the community a little economic boost.
Nora Chovanec, Texas Farmers’ Market Deputy Director, stated “The awareness during this special week helps people realize that not only do the local farmers and ranchers in the area continue to provide markets sustainable goods, but they are also putting their money back into the local economy through patronizing local feed stores and vendor-related businesses. This direct-market process creates a positive cycle of demand and supply while boosting the local economy.”
TFM has been working hard, continuing to follow strict health and CDC guidelines, so that they and their vendors can provide a safe and welcoming environment. Maps, vendor lists, and advance online vendor orders can be seen at the TFM website or on their social media platforms. TFM is also strictly monitoring the use of face masks, which MUST be worn by all market visitors.
