There's A New Weekly Farmer's Market in Town: Check it Out, Sept 4th!
I think by now, most of us are aware of—and big fans of—the Farmer’s Market at the Cibolo. But what long-time vendors Brittany and Jeremy Spengler of Spengler Farmstead have noticed over the years is that the people of Boerne want even more. So, what did they do? They obliged, of course.
“After participating in our current market for more than four years, Jeremy and I noticed a need for a second, mid-week market in our area. Folks were craving a second opportunity to shop locally sourced, locally grown, locally made foods and to do so directly from those who grow and make them. So, we reached out to the Kendall County Fair Association and our idea was welcomed with opened arms. We began planning from there!”
According to Brittany, it’s that relationship with the Kendall County Fair Association that inspired the name, 1905 Farmer’s Market; a nod to the year of the very first Kendall County Fair. And every Wednesday, from 3:00-7:00pm (year-round) shoppers can find the market at the fairgrounds; with vendors delivering farm-fresh and scratch-made goods, direct from the growers and makers to you.

The 1905 Farmer’s Market will kick-off with its Grand Opening NEXT WEDNESDAY, 9/4/19, and when I asked what message the Spenglers would like to share with their Hill Country neighbors, in anticipation, Brittany’s call to action was clear:
“Remember how important it is to stay connected to your food sources. Support your local farmer's markets. Support your local small businesses. And always stay active in helping to cultivate the community in which you live!”
