City Hall Farmers Market Starts Its Fall Season Today
After a much-needed break during the hottest part of the year, the City Hall Farmers Market is returning to its regular weekly schedule starting today. The fall season of the City Hall Farmers Market starts today at 11 a.m. and will run every Wednesday throughout the season. The market closes each Wednesday at 2 p.m.

Along with favorites such as Atkinson Farm (whose carrots you can see above), there will be plenty of returning vendors this fall: Swede Family Farm, Warfel Farms, Angela's Oven, Sinfull Bakery and Nisha's Quick N Ezee, just to name a few. But there will also be a few new vendors for you to visit.
Making their debut at the City Hall Farmers Market today are:
- Renaissance Chicken: Free-range chicken and quail eggs
- Texas Juice Girl: Seasonal bottled juices
- Texas T Kobe Beef: Grass-fed, Japanese-style Kobe beef
- Zierau Fine Foods: Catfish tacos, seasoning blends and rubs
They join the 35 vendors that currently spread out in front of City Hall and its reflecting pool each Wednesday afternoon, offering fresh produce, baked goods, cheese, meat and more.
Grab lunch from one of the many prepared food vendors -- Radical Eats' vegan tamales and Pure Catering's veggie bowls are two of my personal favorites -- and eat lunch on one of the picnic tables in the sunshine. And when you're done, load up on fresh goodies before you head back to work with your haul. As a bonus, your office fridge can finally be used for something other than rotting Lunchables.
