SFC Farmer’s Market

One of the most popular and well-known farmer’s markets in the Austin area is the Sustainable Food Center farmers market downtown. This is perfect if you are staying with us in one of our downtown condos, apartments, or houses, which makes this accessible market within walking distance of your very own front door.

We love coming here on Saturday mornings after a nice walk around the city center, going for a hike, or going out for breakfast. Just take a nice stroll through the charming city of Austin and head to Guadalupe Street and Republic Square, rain or shine, to explore more than 75 weekly vendors, local farmer’s products and produce, large green spaces to listen to live music or have a picnic, and good vibes from locals.

The SFC Farmers Market in downtown Austin has been going strong for over twenty years now. Ever since 2003, this community-friendly open-air farmer’s market has featured community events, programs, kid-friendly activities, local businesses, tasty food, and sweet treats for you to enjoy on a Saturday morning. Plus, you can purchase fresh vegetables, fruits, meat, and locally made crunchy pastries from dozens of vendors.

● The fresh flowers.
● Locally picked fruits and vegetables.
● Tasty coffee from Creature Coffee.
