 We are looking for some small family farmers with vegetables and fruits to sell at our market!

Visit us during market hours (Saturday 10-2) and speak with Vendor Liaison Erika Bradshaw directly about becoming a vendor. Or call her at 512-360-4799 and leave a message about what you would like to sell at our market.

We are a producers’ 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).

We are also looking for a musician or two to play on Saturday mornings at market. Contact Erika at market. Or call her at 512 360-4799 and leave a message about your music. Not much money but some free veggies and happy customers.

In order to fairly serve all our customers, we ask you to please respect our opening times.There is no bagging or selling before the official opening of market. Thanks for your patronage and understanding.

Open all year round, inside a reconverted enclosed barn; hours are Saturdays 10-2. The Texas Lone Star card is welcomed for food purchases.

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.
