Every Saturday Cedar Park Farms to Market

Name: Cedar Park Farms to Market
When: Every Saturday – 9 am – 1 pm
Location: (Behind Sears & Dillard’s) Lakeline Mall Parking Lot, Cedar Park, TX

Cedar Park Farms to Market is an event / farmers market every Saturday. Being in the “Top 20 Favorite Large Farmer’s Market” in the United States, this event is sure to entertain us all.

This event actually focuses on educating people about the importance and the advantage of eating locally-grown foods and products. Local vendors and farmers are not the only ones benefiting in this event – we can get a lot from here too. Know why? Eating healthy, super fresh, produces and other products will benefit us in a big way health-wise.

This is a very fun event… especially for the ‘foodies’ out there. Every Saturday, come and join the farmers market, and discover the selections at the market. You never know what you’re missing!

As usual, for a big event like this happening every Saturday, they are constantly looking for volunteers that can help out at the market.

Every Sunday – Austin Open Air Market at Cedar Park Center
