This may be the world’s smallest Market, but the bonus is a nice sunset behind the neighboring grain silos. I found a small Valentine’s cookie to purchase, took some photos, wandered around, and had dinner in downtown Hutto to finish off the evening.
I have a confession. I am starting to fall in like with the East side of Austin. Yes, it is filling up with hipsters, but they are people too, and they haven’t completely taken over yet. This slightly rainy Sunday, I visited the HOPE Farmers Market. I planned on walking through and maybe getting a coffee or something. Then I ran into Jackie Venson on stage – and hold it – the guitar music and vocals are amazing. I ended up staying for both of her sets and enjoying her performance. I did also get some coffee and had some fun walking around the Market. There were lady bugs, flowers, guitars, music, fountains, vegetables, coffee, tea, monsters, people, and dogs. Hurray East Austin!
