And for those months outside of the summer, most of these markets are open year-round. Added bonus: most of them are open rain or shine, giving you some outdoor activity options on those drizzly days when you want to show off your raincoat.
With these 13 different farmers markets throughout the greater Austin area, just think—you could hug a different farmer every day of the week!
1. Barton Creek Farmers Market
2017 marks the 20th year for the Barton Creek Farmers Market, which started in the Whole Foods parking lot in 1997. Known for its impossibly rich variety of live music and vendors, the year-round market used to run every Saturday and Sunday at two different locations, but they’ve since slimmed down their operation to Saturdays only.
Saturdays: 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m at Barton Creek Square Mall (S. Loop 1 & and S. Capital of Texas Highway)
