Yesterday I ate the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers. Good riddance! Today was a new day that required fresh veggies. Luckily the HOPE Farmers Market was open despite it being a holiday weekend!
Located just east of downtown Austin at E. 5th and Waller, this market is a little different from others that I’ve been to. In addition to the farmer booths, there are a lot of artists and food/beverage vendors, and there’s always a live band playing. Sounds like fun, right?
While walking around, I got some great gift ideas, but it goes against my procrastinating ways to start Christmas shopping in November. Uh, yeah…Black Friday? No way.
Inside the HOPE Gallery, you can find lots of colorful artwork, including posters for the market. If clothes are more your thing, the Austin Clothes Exchange happens in here on the first Sunday of each month.
So I went there for veggies yet all you’re seeing is photos of arty things. I only saw one veggie vendor today, though it was a big one. My loot: green pepper, green onions, and cheddar cauliflower!
And no, cheddar cauliflower does not taste like cheese, though that would be pretty spectacular…
