Highlights, Vendors, Events and more. Downtown and Sunset Valley - Sat, October 31
Turkey Pre-orders: It’s that time again - order your local, humanely raised, sustainable Thanksgiving turkey now! Richardson’s Farm (Downtown and Sunset Valley) and Belle Vie Farm and Kitchen (Downtown) will be taking preorders online and in person this weekend. Reserve yours soon!

DOWNTOWN: Welcome our newest vendors this weekend Downtown. Zoma Cocina Mexicana makes scratch made and seasonal treats with freshly ground masa. Try the slow roasted chili rubbed pork gordita, and the gluten-free amaranth tres leches cake. Algo Dulce Foods make traditional Latin American flan including Mexican vanilla, chocolate cake, coffee and pecan flavor. The best part? They team up with local producers and use milk from Richardson Farms, eggs from Shirttail Creek Farm, and locally sourced ingredients to flavor each creation.

SUNSET VALLEY: Flintrock Hill Farm is at market with the verrry last of the summer veggies. Pick up a final container of shishito peppers, the last basket of okra, and the ultimate pint of jalapenos for one last nod before the cold snap moves us into the season of roots and greens. Also returning to market are Green Thumb Farming - our favorite backyard gardeners from the Pflugerville area. Pick up lovely bunches of mustard and turnip greens, delicate radishes, the first bunches of carrots and tons of fresh herbs.

To keep our vendors, staff and customers safe, we request everyone wear a face covering or mask while in the market area. Click here to learn more about our safety measures. SFC Farmers' Market match SNAP, WIC and FMNP benefits with Double Up Food Bucks! Visit our website for more information on which vendors will be at market, what products are in season, and more.
