Fresh Convenient Affordable Nutritious

The City of Austin is partnering with the Sustainable Food Center and Farmshare Austin to offer fresh, affordable food through two initiatives.

Farm Stands

Community run markets that are strategically located in areas that are easily walkable to residents of the community. Fresh produce from local Austin farms is sold at reduced prices, making it more affordable than a traditional farmer’s market. Most stands accept SNAP benefits and offer the Double Dollars program. Farm Stands are managed by the Sustainable Food Center.

Mobile Markets

Markets on wheels and run by a local non-profit, Farmshare Austin. They can be easily set up and moved to another location but prioritize areas that have few to no options for buying fresh produce. In addition to produce from local Austin farms, staple goods like pasta, spices, and beans are sold. Prices are affordable and all markets accept SNAP benefits and offer the Double Dollars Program.
