IMPORTANT NEWS! The City has taken over the farmers market on Chestnut! Yes, they are evicting us after 8 years and putting in place a city run community market. See details in the Bastrop Advertiser, page 2 out today. Problem is they plan to open this market July 2 and have not given us legal notice! Nor offered us another place to hold our market as was promised when we were allowed to rent out the space 8 years ago. Nor were we included in the discussion about the new market.
So the Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market will need to find a new venue to host our market. We will need a new place to sell our expected bountiful July harvest of fruits and vegetables. Any and all help will be appreciated in our new situation.
Eat in Good Health and support Local Agriculture!

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.
