Austin-area farmers markets are usually open rain or shine (and snow or freezing temperatures), but not this weekend.
Nearly all of the local farmers markets on both Saturday and Sunday have been canceled. That includes both of the SFC Farmers Markets (downtown and Sunset Valley), the Texas Farmers’ Markets at Lakeline and Mueller and the Barton Creek Farmers Market at Barton Creek Square mall.
The HOPE Farmers Market has not yet officially canceled its Sunday market, but you can keep an eye on their Facebook page for the latest updates.
Keep these Central Texas farmers in your thoughts as these storms approach. Many of them have their fall crops in the ground, and the floods could devastate their fields. If you’d like to make a donation to the Farmer Emergency Fund, an outreach from the Texas Farmers’ Markets to help farmers recover from storms and medical emergencies.
