Quarry Farmer's Market Moves to The Yard

 

The very successful Quarry Farmer's Market is moving effective Sunday December 14, 2015 to the parking lot at The Yard, 5300 McCullough. Hours will continue 9am-1am.  The official name for the enterprise is now The Yard Farmers & Ranchers Market.

 

The Quarry Farmer's Market had a pretty successful run. I don't know why their parking lot set-up did not get renewed. There was some discussion that the parking lot was not available for shoppers. But there was limited retail operating in the area on Sunday, at least that's what I observed.

The new location for the farmers market is less than two miles from its original site at the Quarry Market. This is near Olmos Park and Olmos Park Terrace. The Yard Farmers & Ranchers Market is noted for "featuring local farm-fresh produce, grass-fed and pastured meats, and handcrafted baked goods and other edibles".

 

So if you want farm fresh produce or edibles you will likely not find at your H-E-B, or Fiesta Market, check out The Yard Farmers & Ranchers Market.

My  wife would love to do some shopping at the Quarry Farmer's Market. We will watch for more of your photographs.

What do the offer that is really local?

Wayne what a lovely market.   I am sure those who supported the market will follow it to the new location.   Looking at the produce and goodies I am getting hungry.

Wayne, I love farmers markets and am sad they are gone from our area until Spring. I am sure the Quarry Farmers Market will continue to be well attended, two miles away from it's previous location isn't far.

Looks like the Farmer's Market has something for everyone.  Glad they were able to find a new location.  Enjoyed your video, too.

Wayne, I'm a "wordie",(this is my take on foodie!) so "Quarry" doesn't sound nearly as attractive for food as "yard", for some reason! When I hear quarry, I think rocks....beautiful, yes, but I don't think PRODUCE. Yard seems to feel like local, casual, "just stop by"....you know!

Hi Wayne Johnson I love walking around farmers markets and buying super fresh veggies. I alway end up with much more than I came for like specialty honeys, or very weird organic stuff that I like to try out

Wayne, farmers markets are such fun, both to shop at and to write about.
