Austin's First and Best

We are Austin’s first farmers market, having our beginning on the Whole Foods parking lot in 1987. We have been voted in the top 10 farmers market in the country several times and even in the top 5! We have won Best Austin Farmers Market many times and an award for Best Food Court.

Wolfgang Puck has endorsed our market and we were ranked in the top 10 nationally by the Audubon Society.

The Barton Creek Farmers Market cultivates both economic growth and community health by providing a weekly, open-air market in an urban setting. Over 90% of our vendors sell what they grow or produce. We bring the heart and soul of Texas growers and manufacturers directly to you! We have talented local artisans of all kinds. Our prepared food is made with only healthy, mostly local ingredients.

 

JOIN US FOR A WEEKLY CELEBRATION

Our market is like a very special party and is sought out by vendors and shoppers alike. It is fun for the whole family, too! Rain or shine, we’re always celebrating our weekly, open-air market with fresh foods, live music, kids entertainment, specialty events, festivals, a cafe for breakfast or lunch, and a great community vibe.

 

FRESH PRODUCE DAIRY AND MEATS

Our market features local growers of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, plants, flowers, herbs and artisan cheese makers. Our local ranchers bring antibiotic and hormone free chicken, beef, lamb, goat, pork, bison and fresh fish to the market. Our meats are grass fed and grass finished, unlike the grocery store meats that may be labelled grass-fed but usually is fattened up on grains, thus not grass finished. We have organic pasture raised eggs, low temperature, non-homogenized milk, raw cheeses, delicious yogurt, probiotic vegetables. We even have freshly milled flour and cornmeal from Richardson Farms grains!
