Flowers at SFC Farmers' Market

Our Valentine is... YOU!

This Valentine’s Day we are sending our love to… YOU! Because of the support of our incredible community, together we have been able to accomplish so many incredible things. In just the last 6 months, individuals like you have donated over $112,000 to support healthy, local food in Austin. From helping us provide free resources to school, community and backyard gardens to supporting our local producers at our SFC Farmers’ Markets, and more, your support has meant so much.

Keep reading over on our blog to learn just how much your support has done for our local food community. Wishing you a happy Valentine’s Day filled with all the local sweets you can eat.

Farm to Plate



SFC Farmers’ Market Downtown:

  • Sausage and Greens: Get the perfect additions to all the leafy greens at market with some cuts of pork from Peach Creek Farm. Sample some of their new Bratwurst sausage while stocking up on their delicious bacon, stellar pan sausage, chorizo, and more.

    You may know Margaret for her choice chicken and duck eggs, but grab some kale or collard greens from Margaret’s Farm to pair with the pork and make stellar meals for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

SFC Farmers’ Market at Sunset Valley:

  • Cheeeeeeese (Bread)! Haven’t tried the cheese mongers at Sunset Valley yet? Swing by Lira Rossa and grab some fresh mozzarella, latteria, or smoked ricotta. All their cheeses are made with milk from the dairy next door in Moulton, TX.

    Richardson Farms has cheese using milk from their A2/A2 cows - that makes it easier to digest if dairy gives you dietary troubles. Swing by and grab some swiss, pepper jack, or cheddar from the boys at Sunset Valley this weekend!
  • Welcome Lua Brazil to Sunset Valley: Stop by for some Pão de Queijo (a delicious Brazilian Cheese Bread) great for a hot snack at the market, or take a frozen batch home for a quick snack midweek. Pão de Queijo is made from cassava flour, which makes them gluten-free by design! If you’re looking for options, Lua keeps everyone snacking happily with their rotating seasonal flavors and vegan options.
