Interested in selling at Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market?
We are always looking for new vendors - especially of vegetables and fruits. We are also looking for producers: fish, shrimp, cheeses, whatever you grow in Central Texas! Visit us during market hours (Saturday 10-2) and speak with Market Manager Robert Fajkus directly about becoming a vendor. We are a producer’s 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). At this time, we mainly seek agricultural producers. Sorry, space to other categories of vendors such as bakers, artisans is very limited at this time.
Artisans, check out our upcoming May Fest!
The Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market is a project of Bastrop Sustainable Agricultural Community (BSAC), a non-profit 501c3 corporation. The mission of the Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market is to create and sustain a market space for small family farmers, ranchers, producers, and artisans, including those who are economically disadvantaged, to sell and promote their own farm and ranch products, artisan wares, ready-to-eat foods and other homemade products in a family-oriented environment. The vendors of The Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market are an enthusiastic and friendly group of farmers, ranchers and artisans. Our market features locally grown food: vegetables, fruits, farm eggs, meats, honey, prepared foods, plus handcrafted artisan goods. Please come visit us soon!
