News From The Market

BARTON CREEK FARMERS MARKET
FREEZE FUND

Thank you to everyone who has helped!

Please continue to come to the market to support our farmers AND also donate!

Richardson Farms Jim R.Many of our farmers suffered greatly from the frozen devastation last month. We are passionate about supporting local farmers and I know many of you are also. Without them, we would be compromising daily on our food choices.

Richardson Farms cows were seriously injured; they lost electricity for days, thus were unable to milk their cows. Many cows suffered frostbite on their udders as a result (the milk leaks, then freezes). As Jim R. is a vet, he will likely save their lives. He doesn’t slaughter his milk cows; they will retire on his and Kay’s farm. Farms’ pipes have burst and repairs are vital. Other farms and growers suffered also – Smith & Smith, Rasmey’s Gardens, Svantes, Sandy Creek, Big Brazos, etc.

There are several ways you can donate to the farmers:

  1. Donate directly to the grower – for contact info, email us at bartoncreekfarmersmarket@gmail.com or call 512-280-1976 for info.
  2. Use the Go Fund Me account: https://www.gofundme.com/f/barton-creek-farmers-market-farmers-freeze-fund
  3. You can mail a check to BCFM, 3110 Fontana Dr., Austin, TX 78704.

100% of any donation will go directly to the farmers.

Thank you!

Also participating are prepared food vendors, artisans, bakers, and live music weekly.

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!
