Austin is a city that loves all things local. It also happens to be kind of obsessed with food. Combine the two and you get something like the Sustainable Food Center Farmers’ Market where you’ll find not only lots of veggies, fruits, meats and cheeses amid the many stands but also jams, honey, flowers, soaps and other award-winning, artisanal goods. You can wander through the downtown farmers’ market every Saturday, rain or shine, from 9am to 1pm. Since the market is located in Republic Square Park, feel free to make a picnic of your recently purchased, locally made treats while listening to the tunes of whichever musician they've brought out that week.
