Farmstand Marfa

MARFA – Farmstand Marfa will open its 11th season in 2017 on Saturday, March 18 in the Saint George Annex, across from the Hotel Saint George on El Paso Street between Highland and Dean streets.

It’s a big neighborhood get-together of the community and visitors eager to sample the unique offerings of the Big Bend in a friendly, social atmosphere. Each Saturday, rain, wind or shine, the vendors bring a diverse and unusual array of locally produced goods that could include homemade foods, local produce, handmade goods and community tables to support their missions. Although the offerings vary from week to week, you can almost always sample a savory breakfast burrito, take home a loaf of organic bread, grab a bunch of spicy arugula or a jar of the freshest salsa around. Dependent on the season, local produce from the backyard gardens to ranch orchards will show off the spectacular results of clean air and lots sunshine.  Fresh eggs can be found as well as local goat cheese.  Fine art and clever crafts make the most unique presents and are often very affordable.

Come early (9:30 a.m.) if you want the first pick. Cash is king but most vendors will take a check. If you want to be added to the weekly email announcement of the upcoming Farmstand goods or have questions about becoming a vendor at Farmstand Marfa, contact Farmstand founder Malinda Beeman at (432) 559-7515 or email farmstandmarfamanager@gmail.com.
