Forage Farmers Markets

Picking up fresh produce for the week at one of the city's farmers markets makes you feel good about yourself. There's something about getting outside, walking around and selecting healthy, locally grown food that sets a positive tone for the rest of the day. Here are three to take in around town:

Olmos Basin Farmers Market Smaller than other markets but a favorite among its faithful, Olmos Basin Farmers Market features vendors from rural areas surrounding San Antonio, with producers from Natalia, Devine and Fredericksburg. It's located across from the Quarry Market on the other side of Highway 281. 7:30am-1pm Tuesday and Saturday, 100 Jackson Keller Road.

Pearl Farmers Market The dog-friendly Pearl Farmers Market runs every weekend, with all vendors located within 150 miles of San Antonio. Stock up on fresh produce, meat and bread for dinner, or snack on crepes and tamales while listening to live tunes. 9am-1pm Saturday, 10am-2pm Sunday, 312 Pearl Pkwy.

Main Plaza Farmers' Market The Main Plaza Farmer's Market runs from March 15 through December 20. In addition to local, organic produce offerings, soaps, tamales and household goods, the market also holds cooking demonstrations and Q&A sessions with chefs and farmers. 10am-1:30pm Tuesday, 115 N. Main Ave.
