Highlights, Vendors, Events and more. Downtown and Sunset Valley - Sat, Mar. 7
Sunset Valley: Hurry into the market so you can get home and have your very own brunch. First stop is to Le Renard Patisserie for a bag of cheddar muffins, olive oil blueberry cake, scones stuffed with seasonal fruit and a jar of homemade jam. Pair this with a pound of coffee from Texas Coffee Traders. Try the March Coffee of the Month - fair trade and organic Sidamo! Don’t forget to pick up eggs and bacon from Richardson’s Farm for a breakfast spread you won’t soon forget.

Downtown: New Vendor Alert! Get out your knives! Welcome our new resident knife sharpener Austin Blades to the Downtown market. Kenneth Kruse and co. will be onsite weekly to help you out with kitchen knives, gardening shears, clippers, scissors and more! Also joining us will be Austin Jam Company bringing unique jam flavors like Traffic Jam (think carrot cake, but in jam form) and That’s My Jam (a smooth blend of strawberries, lemon, and geranium.) Dolce Malatesta will also be onsite with beautiful upcycled pillows, mosaic tables, and brightly colored curtains.
