Highlights, Vendors, Events and more. Downtown and Sunset Valley - Sat, Dec 19
DOWNTOWN: There are few things that help get us through the holidays like a perfect cup of morning coffee. Thanks to Talisman Coffee Co. you can now get your freshly roasted beans right at the market! Try the blend with hints of strawberry, cacao, and a caramel finish. For an out of the box holiday meal, think small! Belle Vie Farm and Kitchen has a Package Picnic option which includes two jars of charcuterie, duck prosciutto, and smoked ham that fits in as well in your backyard as it will on a crisp winter hike. Order online today for pickup at the market this weekend.

SUNSET VALLEY: For all of those staying home this winter and planning smaller and more intimate celebrations, we’ve got you covered. Missing a huge stack of steaming tamales on the table? Pick up a dozen frozen from Tamale Addiction, in flavors like poblano muenster and pork tomatillo, it will feel like you're back home again. If making a huge meal isn’t in your cards, pick up a few pounds of brisket and smoked sausage from Metcalf BBQ and treat yourself to a very Texas Christmas meal.

Please Note: Both SFC Farmers' Markets will be closed next week on December 26th so our staff, farmers, and artisan vendors can have a quick break, spend time with their loved ones, and come back refreshed for the New Year!

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.
