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).

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!
