SFC Farmers' Market at Sunset Valley is Open!
It’s the second week of spring and we are excited to announce our Sunset Valley market is once again open for business this weekend! We have moved from our original location but are still located just across from the Toney Burger Center. Find us at Sunset Valley Elementary, 9 am - 1 pm for a wonderful and assorted selection of locally grown veggies, meats, a variety of tasty grab and go eats, and locally made artistic crafts. If our Downtown location is your preference, we’ll see you once again at Republic Square, also with all your favorite farmers, ranchers, artists, and a unique variety of prepared and delicious goods.

Downtown: “Pastries crafted with love in Austin, TX”. Visit Cake and Spoon for their freshly baked and wonderfully delicious treats including scones, tarts, and pies to name just a few. And to complement those baked treats, visit El Talisman Coffee. This family-owned and local coffee company has a very nice selection of blends originating from the lush mountains of Matagalpa, Nicaragua.

Sunset Valley: Welcome back to Sunset Valley! Our market vendors are excited to have everyone visit them once again and are providing you with a wide variety to choose from. Visit Goldenwood Mushrooms to select from their mushroom varieties and delicious salsas. And make sure and stop by Left Hand Jelly to choose from the flavorful different delicious jellies, from sweet to spice, and some of the “finest Texas pepper jellies” around.

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.
