The Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market is a project of Bastrop Sustainable Agricultural Community, a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation. Market opened May 8, 2008.
Our mission includes operating the Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market to provide Bastrop and the surrounding region with locally grown foods and farm products in direct farm-to-consumer marketing that serves a diverse population, preserves and promotes our local agriculture and improves the quality of life in the greater Bastrop County area.
We provide a market designed for farmers and artisans, including those who are economically disadvantaged, to sell their farm and ranch products, artisan goods, prepared foods and other handmade products.
The Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market improves access to local, healthy, affordable food for children and adults while assisting family farmers and ranchers to create a local, sustainable agricultural economy.
Our market also helps to ensure that the needy have access to healthy food through our spare change campaign.
We feature regular food/cooking demonstrations to provide information on preparing fresh foods and maintains a library of free recipes and gardening handouts.
