Amid long lines and rationed stock at grocery stores around the Austin area, the Texas Farmers’ Market will open its two locations this weekend for shoppers.

Michele Golden, a media relations representative for Texas Farmers’ Market, said the open-air markets at Lakeline Mall at 11200 Lakeline Mall Drive, Cedar Park, and at Mueller at 4209 Airport Blvd., Austin, with farm stands selling fresh produce and other goods.

The market at Lakeline Mall will be open from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The Texas Farmers' Market at Mueller will be open from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Texas Farmers’ Market is asking the public for donations to support its farmer and rancher producers who have been affected by the recent winter storm.

Funds raised will be made available to members who have experienced an accident, illness or crop or animal loss, according to a Feb. 19 news release from the nonprofit organization. Donations can be made in-person at the main market tents or online here.


The market openings follow announcements that H-E-B and Central Market grocery stores limited store hours and placed purchase limits on some high-demand products Feb. 19.

According to H-E-B’s website, Austin store hours will run from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Feb. 20.
