The Austin Farmers' Market (AFM), a growers-only market, is a vital part of the Austin Community and the Austin experience. The market includes local (within 150 miles) farms, ranches, dairies and nurseries. It is the premiere place to buy your fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, eggs and plants. The AFM is located in the heart of downtown at Republic Square Park (4th and Guadalupe), and in the north central area in Hyde Park (nearby Allandale & Rosedale) at the Triangle Park (46th between Lamar and Guadalupe) in the Triangle complex. You can shop downtown on Saturdays between 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and at the Triangle on Wednesday evenings from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
The market is an integral part of the community and the Austin experience. When you shop at the AFM, you get the freshest, most delicious foods available from the growers and vendors themselves! There are ample prepared foods from locals like Taco Deli or the Mediterranean Chef; farm products turned into jams, salsas and honey from all the farms; and hand-made crafts from the likes of Primitives by Patima (specializing in beautiful ornaments) and Edimoto (providing Japanese calligraphy). While your there, don’t forget to pick-up some amazing tamales from Oaxacan Tamaleo and drink a tall glass of Root Beer from Austin’s own Maine Root Fresh Brewed Tap Root Beer.
If the above wasn’t enough, there are Chef's demos, children's activities, massage on the lawn, and live music sprinkled all over the market, making the experience a lot of fun for the whole family.
