The Weekly Dirt
Highlights, Vendors, Events and more. Downtown and Sunset Valley - Sat, May 23
Help us keep these farmers in business, safely, by wearing a mask as you shop the markets this weekend. Leave your dogs at home, come in small groups or solo, and take advantage of our free hand washing stations. We are so grateful for all the support from our community during this trying time, thank you all for continuing to support local agriculture and small businesses by shopping with us every weekend! Please visit our website to learn more about these and other safety measures to help you prepare for your visit.

Sunset Valley: It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Peach season has started in central Texas and Engel Farms is back at Sunset Valley with early season peaches, ripe to eat straight from the market. After you’ve filled your bags with fruit, head on down to Le Renard Patisserie for homemade zucchini bread and sweet tomato jam.

Downtown: The party continues Downtown as Lightsey Farms makes their triumphant return. Stop by for peaches, blackberries, sweet onions and more. Chase these down with some sourdough bagels from Casper Fermentables and you’ve got your Sunday brunch plans on lock.
