Organic vegetables are grown without the use of pesticides, as they naturally repel pests by repeating everything they say in a singsong voice. Savor the taste of these wonder foods with today's Groupon: for $2, you get $4 worth of fresh, organic produce and handcrafted wares at Barton Creek Farmers Market.
Barton Creek Farmers Market's array of fresh, organic produce, grass-fed meats, and handmade crafts from local artisans helped to earn it recognition from The Austin Chronicle, which awarded it Best Farmers Market in 2007, 2008, and 2010 readers polls. Weekly live music tickles shoppers' cochleae as musicians roam the open-air market every Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Snackers can pair an organic Hill Country cupcake ($2.50 each) with sips of organic, low-temperature pasteurized milk, which comes from cows fed grass instead of insincere compliments ($7). Sprays of fresh, seasonal tomatoes, pumpkins, and okra adorn tables and help to power up visitors for browsing handcrafted jewelry, apparel, and soaps with antioxidant-infused kombucha ($3). Guests can purchase an original masterpiece from a local artist or commission a portrait that ages every time someone references Oscar Wilde.
