Cowtown Farmers Market

This morning my sister and I ventured out to the best little farmers market in town! She wanted to find a good farmers market in town and honestly I had no idea this one existed. I have seen a few markets here and there but now one like this! This market reminds me of the market we go to in Santa Fe. There were handmade cheeses, breads, homegrown herbs and veggies, home roasted coffee, and soap products! We were in heaven! 




The vendors at this market are so friendly and more than happy to give you pointers and tips on veggies and growing them. They are truly a bunch of happy people!

We stopped at every vendor's booth and everyone had something unique to offer. This market is strictly all home grown Texas farmers. No imports are allowed. So, you know when you are purchasing something from this market you know you are supporting your local farmers. 

We picked up some of the best goat cheese I have ever tasted from Latte Da Dairy.  Of course we could not resist buying some bread too from Artisan Baking Co. He has some of the most wonderful breads and the aromas were amazing. This bread we picked up for my Grandmother. But next week we are getting some for ourselves! 


We also got tomato plants and I got 2 cucumber plants. 


We met the nicest man at the Wildflower Soaps booth. His bath bombs were on sale and I am a sucker for bath bombs! My sister also picked up Too Shea, it is a shea butter salve and smells and feels fantastic. 


Then, we found the Hot Tamalez booth. Folks, if you live locally you better get over to this market next Saturday. These tamales are AWESOME. And, the best part is, she has samples to try! We got the chipotle beef tamales and black bean and corn tamales for my parents who are avid tamale lovers!


So far, today has been a very happy day. It is a beautiful day outside. I think I may go get my plants in the ground now. 

What a great market. I will be back next week!

Cheers!

I haven't been to that market very often, but it is an awesome one! And I will agree, the tamales are DE-LISH! Also, our friend Gwin is the owner of Artisan Bakery. You'll have to tell her you're a friend of mine ;)
