Nestled within the eco-friendly and sustainably-minded Village Farm Austin Tiny Home Community lies a treasure trove of organic delights – Greengate Farms. This 120-year-old organic farm is not just a beacon of sustainable living but also a vibrant hub for the local community, hosting a weekly Saturday Farmer’s Market that has become a must-visit destination in Austin, Texas.
A Bounty of Organic Goodness
Each Saturday, the market at Greengate Farms comes alive with an array of fresh, organic produce and unique local products. This month, you can expect to find a variety of items that celebrate the richness of locally-grown food:
- Bring Me Flours: Indulge in the delectable sourdough breads and sweets crafted by Nicole, a resident baker of Village Farm. Her baked goods are not just treats for the palate but also a testament to the community’s talent and passion for quality.
- Fresh Veggies Galore: The farm’s offerings include a range of vegetables like bok choy, broccoli, cabbage, collards, buttercrunch lettuce, kales, kohlrabi, Swiss chard, radishes, Japanese turnips (a must-try for their amazing taste!), fennel, mint, carrots, beets, and onions.
- Organic Eucalyptus Bundles: Transform your shower into a spa-like retreat or brew a healing tea with Greengate Farms’ organic eucalyptus. Rich in antioxidants, it’s perfect for a restful tea or as a remedy for a sore throat, especially when combined with their Utopia honey.
- More Than Just Produce: In addition to vegetables and eucalyptus, the market also features certified organic eggs, Utopia honey, bulk grains, and more. The best part? All forms of payment are welcome, including cash, cards, and soon, SNAP benefits!
