News From The Market

JOIN FARFA

The Farm & Ranch Freedom Alliance is celebrating 16 years and you can help their mission: to serve as the voice for all independent family farmers.
 
Individual memberships start at just $35.
 

BCFM FREEZE FUND

Our farmers had an unexpected freeze in January and another in February leading to a considerable loss of produce (tens of thousands of dollars worth). Dancing Bear Farm lost every plant on the farm, Fruitful Hill lost a lot and our smaller farmers also suffered. 
 
Please support all of the growers by shopping at the markets, eliminating the need for a middle man. Encourage others to come! We have beautiful postcards that can be passed out and are available at Information.
 
If you can donate as well to help, every penny collected goes to our farmers. If you wish to donate directly, please contact the farmers via phone or at the market or send a check directly to the market (BCFM, 3110 Fontana Drive, Austin TX 78704).
 
 
Thank you so much for caring about our local farms! They represent the best food available for the future!

BCFM Featured as a Local "2020 All Star"

The market, our farmers and vendors are proud to have been featured in Austin 360 as an “all-star” who helped make the pandemic bearable:

“Early on in the pandemic, local farmers markets were deemed essential food access points, and each market — from Bastrop to Bee Cave, Sunset Valley to Georgetown — came up with a new operating strategy so that local farmers, ranchers and food producers could continue to sell their goods to shoppers.

Some set up online ordering systems or drive-thrus; others increased the distance between booths and limited the number of shoppers who could be at the market.”

Thank you to all our vendors supporting and providing to the Austin community!

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!
