As part of our commitment to provide our community with information you can actually use, we are happy to provide a complete list of the Farmers' Markets in San Antonio. If you are not familiar with the Farmers' Markets, they are gathering spots for local farmers to sell their produce to the public. The vendors are all registered with the Texas Department of Agriculture and must prove they are selling their own produce and not just reselling somebody else's stuff. So, you're assured of getting the real thing.
I visit them regularly and have found the quality better than you can find in any grocery store. Everything is fresh, homegrown, delicious and priced right. Depending on the season, you'll find tomatoes, potatoes, onions (green and 1015s), berries, watermelons, corn, spinach, peaches, squash, carrots, green beans, black-eyed peas, apples, jams, jellies, preserves, plants and friendly, knowledgeable vendors.
Most markets open at 9am, some at 8am and close about 1pm or earlier if everything is sold out. The season runs until the first freeze.

In addition to the list below, we've put up a MAP and Driving Directions so you can find your way easily.
Go early to get the best choices, go late for the best values.
Take small bills, just about everything is priced at $1 or $2.
Ask for the 1015 onions with the tops still on them if you plan to buy alot and store for after the season. You may have to ask one of the vendors to bring some for you like that next week. But, this year it seems more are bringing them this way already.
Buy a little extra for a neighbor, friend or someone who can't make it on their own.
