City Guide: Guide to San Antonio's farmers markets

You may already know about the gourmet pickings at the Pearl Brewery’s market (with live music and an ATM machine), but there are bunches (yes, a pun) of other markets in all corners and neighborhoods of Saytown offering locally grown produce and locally raised meats. Most of these markets are WIC-approved and are part of the Senior Voucher program at the San Antonio Food Bank. Unless open year-round, market openings are subject to change. In other words, check ahead.
