The Weekly Dirt
Cabbage and Broccoli
Highlights, Vendors, Events and more. Downtown and Sunset Valley - Sat, Dec. 28
Downtown: Stave off post-Holiday blues with a trip to Austin’s flagship farmers’ market this weekend. While Downtown make sure to pick up a hot poblano and muenster tamale from Tamale Addiction for strolling the aisles. A freshly baked loaf of bread will help you plow through any leftovers you may still have kicking around, and make a great sandwich paired with B5 Farm’s winter tomato crop!

Sunset Valley: If you have any family lingering in your house after the holiday bring them with you to Sunset Valley this weekend. They will be sure to smile to the tunes of Huck Johnson and the Jackknives while feasting on bacon, egg and cheese tacos from Tacodeli. Before you head out grab extra bunches of collard greens from Johnson's Backyard Garden for your New Year’s Day feast!
