Highlights, Vendors, Events and more. Downtown and Sunset Valley - Sat, May 30
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: If all this time at home has you sick of the kitchen get outside and grill! It’s perfect grilling weather, and our farmers have perfect grilling food. Check out the tender new potatoes and jumbo shishito peppers from Priverno Farm - stick the peppers on two skewers to make sure you don’t lose any while flipping. Then head to Copper Creek Ranch for a pair of NY Strip steaks or a coil of smoked beef sausage and dinner is done!

Downtown: Take care of yourself with some calming and restorative products from the Downtown market. Lemon Tree Herbs has adaptogenic and herbal remedies for everything from stress management to seasonal allergies. Stop by for a personalized recommendation. Then head to South Austin People to pick up lavender infused hand cream, laundry detergent free from dyes and synthetic scents, and all natural scrubs for a little pampering this weekend.
