HOPE Farmers Market

At HOPE Farmers Market, it’s a transitional time for vendors of vegetables, with tomatoes yet to come, but great selections of onions, potatoes, beets (the finest! thank you, Johnson’s Backyard Garden), broccoli, and other treats. Today, at least, we arrived early enough to taste that smoked jalapeno sausage from Salt & Time. Wow! No mystery ingredients here! And that’s all that it’s necessary to say about this demonstration of the wonders of small batches and local sources. A member of our party was very sad indeed to have overlooked Pie Fixes Everything. But there’s always a next time. HOPE Farmers Market also issues very handsome posters about the market and sells them at very reasonable prices, and they make great souvenirs of Austin for visitors from afar and for friends and family wherever they may be. See more pictures from today, and don’t forget HOPE Farmers Market next Sunday at Pine Street Station 414 Waller Street, from 11 am to 3 pm, friendly and in the shade.
