Did you come for kombucha and chicken last week?  We apologize for the inconvenience, it was due to circumstances beyond our control.  Don't worry!  They are back this week!  Remember to visit our Facebook Page to get the map for this Saturday.  Heads up!  Blue Moose Pizza will not be doing a pizza demonstration this week, but they will still have pizza - woohoo!

National Farmers Market Week is almost over, but for us it is Farmers Market Week every week!  We are more than just a grocery, folks.  We are a place to connect with friends, family, and your community.  

This Saturday Jorge & Nicole will play for us.

 Click this link to hear a sample!  

Sit in the shade and listen while you have one of our many breakfast and lunch options!  See what suits you - we have something for everyone.  

 

It's National Farmers Market Week!! Did you know that Farmers Markets are more than just a fun way to spend your Saturday morning?

Farmers Markets support healthy communities, increase access to fresh and nutritious food, stimulate local economies, and preserve America's rural farmland.

Remember, if we didn't have farms, we wouldn't have food. Help keep farmers in business and support your farmers market!

 

 The Farmers Market has a new pavilion!  With over 1200 square feet of permanent shade, you can now comfortably relax with a cold drink and a farmers market delicacy without enduring the direct sun.  This Saturday, Code 2 will play under the big tree.  Come enjoy your Saturday morning with live music by these Comal County Firefighters.

We hope you saw the special Dia de Los Muertos display at our market this past Saturday. The display was prepared by Pauline Stevens.

Dia de los Muertos is a holiday observed in Mexico, and other parts of the world. Participants make decorative altars to honor and remember deceased loved ones.

From Pauline: "It is said that we died twice; Once when we pass away, the second time when we are forgotten. Dia de los Muertos is a time to remember and honor the memory of someone we lost. A time to celebrate their lives by allowing ourselves to miss, laugh and even cry a little."

Coming up...
