A Hidden Gem: Buda Farmers’ Market!

The Choose Healthier app will list healthy activities and options all over Central Texas, not just in Austin! One market we love that’s a bit beyond ATX is the Buda Farmers’ Market! The market was started five years ago by farmer and community member Jennifer Denton, who has always been passionate about eating healthy and supporting local producers.

One market manager, Jonas Jones, explains, “Because we all grow food, we have an extreme dedication to quality food, price, and accessibility.”

The Buda Farmers’ Market will be hosting Art Days every third Saturday starting March 21st, free for all artisans, with live music, info booths and kids’ activities! “I think the app is a wonderful idea,” Jonas shared. He told us that in this day and age, people don’t often stumble upon local markets, they usually search for them online.  “People are more aware of their phones and technology than their surroundings. It’s not their fault, life moves swiftly and time is precious! Technology like Choose Healthier makes it easy and quick to find healthy information.”

Check out the market for their first Art Day! Even for Austinities, this local goodness is worth the trip.
