happy faceVery good news--the council extended our lease until the end of the year at least. More details later. Will be working with Main street program--but Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market will still hold our Saturday Market 10-2 every weekend in the barn! Thanks for all your support and comments to the city. Thanks for supporting local agriculture!


Due to the excessive heat and the negative effect the weather has had on our farmers’ crops, the Market is discontinuing our Tuesday afternoon market. The last Tuesday market was Tuesday, June 28th. We apologize for any inconvenience that this causes. We invite you to visit the Market on Saturdays, open from 10am-2pm.

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 the healthy food, through our Demonstration & Giving Garden, harvested by the Bastrop Food Pantry and with cash donations from our Spare Change Campaign.

In addition, Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market provides education about agriculture and teaches young people how to grow and sell food through our school garden programs.

We feature regular food/cooking demonstrations to provide information on preparing fresh foods and maintains a library of free recipes and gardening handouts.

For General Market information & Vendor inquiries: Erika Bradshaw at 512-360-4799 or Dolores Leeper at 512-360-4502.
