About The Market

After two successful years of the Sunday Quarry Farmers & Ranchers Market, co-founders and directors Heather Hunter and F. David Lent agreed it was time to branch out and start a Saturday market.

They searched for the perfect location and decided that Southtown was where they needed to be. Without a neighborhood grocery store, a farmers market would feed the hungry community and bring the downtown residents and neighbors together each week to celebrate, shop and eat in a local,  spirited way.

They met with Blue Star Arts Complex owner, James Lifshutz, who was overwhelmingly supportive of the idea. A partnership was formed and the Southtown Farmers & Ranchers Market was born.

Hunter, Lent and the market members look forward to being an integral part of the neighborhood every Saturday. Situated along the Mission Reach of the San Antonio River, this is a great place to bring your friends, family and out of town visitors to experience the city’s growing local food movement.
