Highlights, Vendors, Events and more. Downtown and Sunset Valley - Sat. June 19
Summer is arriving and the markets are in full swing. Find the SFC Farmers’ Market at Sunset Valley in our regular location at the Toney Burger Center. You can also find us Downtown at Republic Square; both markets run Saturday, 9 AM to 1 PM.

Downtown: Stop by Pepper Love Hot Sauce and get a burst of flavors from their delicious small-batch homemade sauces such as Habanero Sunshine or Moroccan Black Garlic. They use fresh ingredients and a blend of spices that are perfect complements to your other market meals. One of our newest vendors fits right into the Austin food scene…The Brazilian Hot Dog. Their hot dogs are loaded with corn, Texas-style pico de gallo, parmesan cheese, and other toppings. Finally, for some of the finest Wagyu-certified meats, visit Peeler Farms. Their succulent and beautifully marbled Wagyu beef is a chef and meat lover's favorite.

Sunset Valley: Warm weather has arrived and no better meal than a wonderful salad to keep it flavorful and lite. Visit Green Thumb Farming. They are a suburban micro-farm and have a wonderful variety of greens for your weekend lunch. For a sweet taste of honey in your summer drinks, Austin Honey Company has a delicious assortment of honey products from their happy bees that reside on local farms within a 30-mile radius of Austin. And while at the market, if you are looking for a special gift, don’t forget Rose Burkhardt Jewelry. They have a beautiful collection of exquisite handmade jewelry including bracelets, earrings, and more.
