Fredericksburg Farmers Market

There’s nothing like the fresh taste of locally grown fruits, vegetables, cheeses, and meats! The Fredericksburg Farmers Market provides goods from farmers, ranchers, and wineries in and around Gillespie County. 

In addition to shopping for agricultural products, on a typical day, visitors can also enjoy wine tastings from some of the excellent wineries in the region. If wine isn’t your thing, there are also coffee roasters and other vendors to quench your thirst.

During spring and summer weeks, free live music under the pavilion is provided to add a layer of fun to this family-friendly event, so you can kick back, relax, and enjoy the afternoon.

Because it is a truly local event and vendors are committed to their mission of providing the best goods for locals and visitors, there are plenty of opportunities to meet a farmer, rancher, chef, baker, or vintner, as they are often present to ask questions. This is a great way to support local agriculture and viticulture in Fredericksburg while enjoying the great tastes and health benefits that come from eating wholesome, local food. Not to mention, it’s a great way to spend a Thursday afternoon!

Please visit the Fredericksburg Farmers Market website for a list of vendors and upcoming dates. Vendors are subject to change, but there are always several to visit on any given week.
