If you can’t find farm fresh vegetables in Austin, you aren’t looking hard enough. There are literally markets and farm stands popping up on every corner.
This weekend, the Downtown Austin Farmers Market is having their “Tomato Me Crazy” festival including a chef’s demo from Mark Spedale of Primzie Osteria a Top Tomato contest for home gardeners and some very messy sounding events like the Tomato Spoon Race and Tomato Splat.
Not to be out done, Boggy Creek Farm
is also having a Tomato fest this weekend. From the
pictures on the website, it looks like they are swimming in them.
For me, I’m skipping the tomato madness and heading to the Sunset Valley Farmers Market
this weekend. I’m going for an early morning bike ride so I’ll be there about 11 am. You know the drill, look for my magic bag if you want to come shopping with me.
If you are all booked up on Saturday, don’t worry. Farmhouse Delivery
has come to your rescue with their Sinner’s Brunch Farm Stand at Jo’s on S. Congress from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm. Brunch and fresh veggies – Score!
Farmhouse Delivery is also hosting a farm stand on Wednesday mornings at Jo’s on 2nd from 7:30 am to 11:00 am.
Finally, American Farmland Trust is hosting a contest for America’s Favorite Farmer’s Markets. You can vote for the Austin Farmers’ Market by clicking here
