About our logo—it was designed with the idea of commemorating the founding of the city of Bastrop in 1832. We honor the original settlers, farmers, and ranchers with the Texas Star and date and remember all the hard work it took to establish homes and businesses back then. In addition, red is for the fruits of our labors, the green for growth of our mission, yellow for blossoming of our passion to create a farmers marketplace for small family farmers, ranchers, producers, and artisans to provide Bastrop and the surrounding area with locally grown foods and farm products in a direct farm-to-consume marketing venue that serves diverse populations, preserves and promotes regional agriculture, and enhances the quality of life in the greater Bastrop area.
We are looking for some small family farmers with vegetables and fruits to sell at our market!
Visit us during market hours (Saturday 10-2) and speak with Vendor Liaison Erika Bradshaw directly about becoming a vendor. Or call her at 512-360-4799 and leave a message about what you would like to sell at our market.
We are a producers’ only market which means that all products brought to market are grown, made, baked, or prepared personally by the vendor--no reselling is allowed. Also no wholesaling to the general public is allowed at market, nor is dumping (selling for substantially less than market averages).
We are also looking for a musician or two to play on Saturday mornings at market. Contact Erika at market. Or call her at 512 360-4799 and leave a message about your music. Not much money but happy customers!
