Markets are open this weekend! To keep our vendors, staff and customers safe, we request everyone wear a face covering or mask while in the market area. Please visit our website to learn more about our safety measures.

SUNSET VALLEY: New Vendor Alert! Saddle up and head to Sunset Valley this weekend to meet our newest vendors. First up try Metcalf BBQ for slow-smoked brisket, jalapeno sausage, and quite possibly the best smoked turkey in the world. Love Succs Succulents is bringing the cutest home and apartment buddies ready for you to love. You will find cacti and succulents in galvanized pails, vintage pottery, and hanging in macramé baskets. Locally sourced and potted right here in Austin!

DOWNTOWN: New Vendor Alert! We are so excited to welcome SimpliThai to the Downtown market this weekend! Pick up a deliciously fresh meal kit, including locally sourced veggies and herbs, so you can make dinner in a snap. Try the pad kee mao, yellow curry, or tom kha soup for a fresh Thai dinner made from scratch! Also in attendance is Natalie Mackey’s Good Vibes tie-dye shop! Shirts, dresses, household items and more. Bring your own white clothing and get a custom piece made just for you, groovy! Last but not least, joining us this weekend is Pirate Pickles. These jars of crunch and tangy pickles are made with local cucumbers and other produce. On the table this weekend are ginger zinger pickles, pickled peaches, and spiced pickled beets!
