As you may know, it was with heavy hearts that we had to cancel our annual Austin Fermentation Festival due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. But we are still going to run an online and at-market silent auction fundraiser this October! This year, like so many essential nonprofit organizations, we are hurting financially and running this auction will allow us to keep our markets open safely, supporting over 130+ local small businesses and keeping our community fed with healthy, sustainable food.
Want to treat yourself this fall? We suggest bidding on a 10-course dinner for four at Uchi Austin or a staycation at the newly opened luxurious Commodore Perry Estate. Looking to get into the fermentation fervor? Check out the gorgeous sky blue handmade crock from Mudslide Stoneware or the countertop fermentation starter kits from Kraut Source.
You must sign up for an account to participate. We will have all of the items on view in-person at the markets October 31/November 1 and bidding will run until November 1 at 1pm. Auction items can be picked up at Texas Farmers’ Market at Mueller on November 1 after the auction ends, at either of the markets the following weekend or shipped to out of town winners (additional shipping costs may apply). We encourage y’all to bid early and often!
