When you need to get out of the house but still want to social distance, sometimes it’s hard to find the right option. Why not knock out some grocery shopping while you are at it? The Downtown Buda Farmers’ Market checks all of these boxes with some added perks like an open outdoor space, live music on select days, and the satisfaction of supporting local artisans.
Head to the Downtown Buda Farmers’ Market every Sunday from 10-2 pm at Buda Mill & Grain Co. to find live music, friends and family catching up, and everything you need from produce all the way to dog treats. Run by farmers themselves, this market knows what it takes to bring in high quality foods and a knowledge base for health and wellness. Market Manager and full time farmer, Jonas Jones, is the backbone behind the operation and works hard to provide a local hub for health and family.
Tres Weddle from Happy Gut Foods offers delicious lacto-fermented foods like kimchi and sauerkraut that he and his family started making after seeking ways to get healthy. His pride for his work and strong sense of community are common amongst vendors and patrons alike.
“Check out what is going on near you. Whether it be food or other products people are making for the community; there’s some fantastic stuff going on. And you’re going to get to know your neighbors” Weddle said. “[They’re] out here grabbing vegetables or lunch and hopefully some sauerkraut for the week.”
We can’t forget the added bonus as Ken Sepulveda from Righteous Greens pointed out: getting to know the farmers who grow your food.
“It is always nice to know where your food comes from,” Sepulveda said. “Sometimes the produce in the supermarket can be months old and people don’t realize that.”
Righteous Greens grows microgreens right from his home in Wimberley and his batches are fresh every week! Trust us when we say, you’ll be back every week just for these greens.
And before you head out, be sure to grab a bottle or two of fresh squeezed juices to enjoy right away! A local Buda business, Green Space, TX offers a range of deliciously healthy juices to choose from every week.
