Barton Creek Farmer’s Market
published on September 27, 2011
In a flurry of people and produce, Barton Creek Farmer’s Market is a one-stop produce shop, located in the Barton Creek area. Voted top 10 Farmer’s Market in the country in 2008 and 2009, Barton Creek Farmer’s Market is also the winner of the Austin Chronicle’s Best Austin Farmer’s Market the last four years in a row. The large market features tons of local produce as well as flowers and general wares for sale every Saturday in the parking lot of the Barton Creek Square Mall, overlooking the city.
“It’s wonderful coming here on Saturday morning to browse the produce,” said Shannon Bernbaum, a native Austinite and a student at Southwestern University. “The view of the skyline is beautiful and only adds to the experience of meeting local farmers and finding out where your food comes from.”
Vendors line the parking lot in rows of pop-up tents and long plastic tables, displaying fresh flowers, baskets of fruit and vegetables, and artisan items. The best part about the Farmer’s Market is that it is year round. Thanks to Austin’s mild winters, the vendors are able to sell their Winter produce along with items such as cheeses, baked goods, pestos, jams, and jellies.
“The Market in the winter is just as fun,” said Bernbaum. “You bundle up, bring a coffee, and shop for chocolates and jelly. It’s the best way to start a Saturday morning, in my opinion.”
