The Georgetown Farmers Market Association unites more than 50 growers from 11 nearby counties to treat shoppers to a bounty of wholesome produce, free-range eggs, artisanal breads, and canned goods. Not only does the bumper crop of fresh greens, fruits, and veggies keep clients eating healthily, but it also connects consumers to their surrounding land and agriculture industry. While perusing bushels of onions, tomatoes, peppers, and melons, visitors can mingle with local farmers to shake the very hands that harvest the crops and learn the secret fifth verse of the Green Acres theme song.
Sweet Love & Sugar Britches may be a clothing boutique, but it's also a family affair. Founder Julia Broadway opened it with her late mother, and named it after her nicknames for two of her daughters. You can find Julia and her daughters working the store most days, where they help customers shop for clothing, jewelry, and home decor. There's also clothing for kids and men, which is good because it's illegal for anyone to walk around naked.
Adams Gifts & Home Décor unlocks a treasure chest of gift-worthy candles, lamps, and fragrances. Light up a loved one's dark secrets with a Texas-made 15-ounce comfort candle, which shoves the olfactory system into overdrive with more than 40 fragrances, including pumpkin bread, apple strudel, mint julep, and citrus grove ($18).

Lampe Berger Oil keeps your lamp burning long into the future with a choice of more than 40 air flavors, such as summer rain, winterwood, fresh eucalyptus, and Atlantic tides ($18.95).
Having spent his entire career in the food industry, Jack Raia has developed an interest in how certain foods reflect the regions and the people that create them. That intrigue fueled the founding of The Blind Squirrel Sandwiches, where Jack and his staff turn the traditional sandwich on its head. “It’s taking something familiar and making it go crazy,” he told the Austin-American Statesman. “We’re making Round Rock weird, one sandwich at a time.”
Strange as its fusion sandwiches may be, there’s no arguing The Blind Squirrel’s commitment to freshness. All meats get roasted, smoked, grilled, and seasoned in house. All sauces, stocks, soups, and sides are made from scratch, too, as are the breads and potato chips. From that hard work emerges uniquely named creations such as The Big Bad Wolf, loaded with ham, bacon, and roasted pork loin. There's also The Godfather with its new york strip steak, and The Quacker, featuring tea-smoked duck that, much like parents before having "the talk" with their kids, takes three full days to prepare.
