Questions about parking?  We're making progress!

Until the larger solution comes to fruition,

Here are some ideas...

1. The O2 Haus has generously offered to share their parking lot!

Park behind their store at 264 W. Mill Street.

Walk across Mill Street, through the Railroad Museum's parking lot,

& across San Antonio Street around the fire station.

It is only a 3 minute walk and you can stop in for some O2 on your way back!

 

2. Park at the OLD Chase Motorbank at

the corner of Coll St. and Castell Ave.

It is no longer in use, and the city has agreed to let us use it!

 

3. Park at The Convention Center.  It is a public lot.

 

4. Street parking is allowed on Hill Street (Behind the CO-OP).

Take Coll St. to Hill St. Be aware of the fire lane.

 

5. There is a public parking lot on Castell Ave.

across from The Downtowner.

 

Comal Doughnut Company

will be making their debut this weekend.

Hand-made, kettle-fried doughnuts!

Classic Glazed

Chocolate Glazed

Organic Sprinkles

Come see Tim, a local doughnut enthusiast, at the pavilion.

Also this week - Bring $5 to benefit Family Promise of Greater NB

and let the kids paint a birdhouse.

We historically only post here once a week to let you know what's coming,

but last week was so pretty, we just had to document it here!

We are a rain or shine market.

That's right, even during Hurricane Patricia, we were open.

Something special happens on super rainy days because it's

The Farmers Market super-fans who will gather with us

on days like we had last week.

It truly feels like a family get-together.

If you were here, you likely enjoyed Die Fröliche Tanztruppe,

New Braunfels' German Folk Dance Troupe.

And Brian Kruckenberg put together a great 4 piece band for us....

It was a beautiful day.

Next time rain is in the forecast, come out anyway.

We have a lot of fun.

We are so sorry it did not work out for us

to have pizza last week,

BUT....

We are making it up to you.  Krause's Cafe is setting up

a booth at the market making

rotisserie chicken sandwiches and

pulled pork sandwiches straight out of the roaster!

Choose your house-made sauce - whole grain mustard or barbeque.

Be sure to walk around the pavilion behind Krause's

to get one of these babies!

wood fired pizza oven this week!

share their lot with our shoppers.

They are located at 264 W. Mill Street.

We will have seafood this week, New Braunfels!

First!!  We revised the recipe we posted last week.

We made the savory version on Valentine's Day and it turned out great,

BUT we added 2 Tablespoons of cornstarch to the batter,

and feel that was a good move.

If you have not made it yet, we recommend it!  The recipe has

been modified to reflect the change, so scroll to see it and give it a try!

 

This week, we welcome Texas Hill Country Olive Company.

They have an olive orchard in Dripping Springs.

Come this week and see what they are all about.

Grab a basket of tomatoes from one of our many farmers, and

Make sure you stop to see Kathleen at EIEIO Farm to get some of her

special aiolis made with ingredients on her farm!  These are great as a dip

for veggies and chips!

 

Serve AWESOME micheladas and bloody Marys with

Madge's Fermented Bloody Mary Mix.

We've got 3 salsa vendors to choose from this week - We suggest some of each!

Smoked meats and cheeses from Bubba's are a must.

You must pick up a few batches of Brazilian Cheese Bread and a

bunch of empanadas.

ON SUNDAY....

You will need some HAIR OF THE DOG.

Get your bloody Mary mix from Hair of the Dog salsa by The Pavilion.

For breakfast, get some chili and mac-n-cheese-to-go from JD's Chili Parlor.

Throw a duck egg on top of your chili and pair it with bread

from C'est la Vie Bakery, and you will start 2017 off right!
