Named Best in Texas Through Farmers Market Celebration
This designation “Best Farmers Market in Texas” is the result of the Farmers Market Celebration, which is a content organized by American Farmland Trust. Markets that participated in the competition were evaluated in four categories:
- Focus on Farmers
- Healthy Food for All
- Pillar of the Community
- Champion of the Environment
Dripping Springs Farmers Market Ranked in Top 10 of the Nation
But wait, it gets even better! Along with being named the best in Texas, the Dripping Springs Farmers Market was also ranked as the 7th best in the nation, and we look forward to seeing it surpass the other top 6 in the years to come.
The Unique Offerings Make it Stand Out
What Laurel Robertson, the Farmers Market Manager, says that sets the Dripping Springs Farmers Market apart from everyone else is the uniqueness of the products sold. Businesses at the Dripping Springs Farmers Market have to make or raise their products themselves, which means that all members of the market are the primary producers of what they sell.
If you haven’t come to experience the Dripping Springs Farmers Market for yourself, you’re really missing out! The best farmers market in Texas takes place every Wednesday, rain or shine, at “The Triangle” on the corner of RR12 and U.S. 290 from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM.
