Join us at Texas Farmers’ Market as we celebrate Earth Month all April long! Our mission of growing a sustainable local food system in Central Texas is directly intertwined with the health of our planet. Shopping at the farmers’ markets is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, because you are purchasing food that was grown within 150 miles of our market, as opposed to being shipped in from thousands of miles away. Join us every weekend in April for a series of fun events and programming to educate and inspire on the many ways we can all do our part to help protect our planet. Click here for more information.
Sunday, April 30th at Mueller, 11am-1pm: Butterfly Celebration with Red River Gardens
Close out Earth Month with a very special event at our Mueller market. Bring the whole family and stop by in front of the pavilion during the middle two hours of market (11am-1pm) to learn about caterpillars and butterflies with Nain Yepez of Red River Gardens. Red River Gardens specializes in native plants and pollinators, teaching shoppers how to utilize the plants that naturally grow around us as food sources or to create beautiful and welcoming environments for our pollinator friends. They will provide a special interactive experience of being able to hold the caterpillars, see how they hatch into beautiful butterflies, and release them into the sky.
