Outdoor 2014

The Outdoor Issue

Celebrate our Outdoor issue this spring by going to at least one farmers market or farm stand each week! It’s a guaranteed way to provision the best of local harvests and put a smile on your face. Plus, you never know what you might encounter there. You might spot celebrity chef Bryce Gilmore of Barley Swine and Odd Duck chatting up the farmers while stocking his coolers for the weekend menu. Or you might happen upon a surprise delight—this day-old Nubian baby goat, for instance, was hanging out at Swede Dairy Farm’s booth, just waiting for its first photo op!

Did you know that there are farmers markets held in Austin six days a week? And, helping to make your farm shopping even more convenient, Boggy Creek Farm is expanding their farm market hours to four days a week: Wednesday through Saturday. You can find a market near you by visiting our farmers market map on edibleaustin.com. And while perusing our website, check out our source guide for farm-to-table restaurants—and support Central Texas chefs and restaurants who buy a good portion of their ingredients locally and sustainably raised.
