Our Market is located at 1302 Chestnut Street by the Railroad Tracks, inside the Market building at the back of the lot. The Market hours are Saturday mornings from 10 am -2pm. We are open every week of the year with fresh produce and tasty prepared foods, locally raised eggs and meat, and a variety of handcrafted goods by artisans. There is plenty of free parking on the lot and having the market inside the large metal building is great during a variety of less than pleasant weather conditions we experience here in Bastrop.

Our mission as a non-profit 501( c ) 3 corporation (Bastrop Sustainable Agricultural Community) is to support the sustainability of agriculture in and around Bastrop County and to enable low income families access to low cost, fresh produce. The Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market is a project of the Corporation. 

Statement of Market Purpose and Philosophy
The Corporation is a certified farmers' market operated in accordance with state, county, and local laws, for the benefit of farmers and consumers alike.  The market operates under the name “Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market” (the “Market”).  The Corporation’s fundamental purpose is to provide the community with fresh, locally grown or locally produced products in a convenient location and to provide producers with a direct market for their goods.  Further objectives derived from the Corporation's mission include education on the benefits of supporting local agriculture in order to preserve farmland in the surrounding community, improve individual health and strengthen community.
