Color me thrilled that a new farmers market has opened down the street from my house in North Central Austin at the North Austin Trailer Yard (NATY), 1012 W. Anderson Lane. While I love going to the larger Downtown and Cedar Park markets, it’s nice to know there is a market a little closer to home.
The inaugural Funkytonk Farmers Market included four farms, a ranch and several food artisans. Of course, it wouldn’t be a farmers market in Austin without Johnson”s Backyard Garden and I met some charming farmers from Gordon”s Natural Garden outside of Manor.
I was delighted to find lamb, pork, beef and chicken from South Star of Texas. They had a great deal of one pound of each for $32. Bargain!
And, possibly in the score of the day, one gentleman was selling Wendish noodles which are fantastic in soups. You should do yourself a favor and get some.
With the music playing, kids playing on the playground and the trailers serving up food, the Funkytonk Farmers Market is a great place to hang out on a lovely Saturday morning. I can’t wait to go back next week.
