Dripping Springs Farmers Market to hold ribbon cutting at Pound House Farmstead

Staff Report

DRIPPING SPRINGS — Following a successful soft opening on March 23, the Dripping Springs Farmers Market will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, March 30 at its new location, the Pound House Farmstead.

Yesterday, the Farmers Market opened at its new location at the historic Pound House Farmstead, moving from its former location at the Triangle, where it’s been housed since 2009. Over the years, the market has sustained growth into a cultural centerpiece, leading it to become the #1 farmers market in Texas three of the last four years.

The Dripping Springs Farmers Market moves to the historic Pound House Farmstead (courtesy map).

The Pound House Farmstead has been the center of Dripping Springs’ heritage since the 1850’s; first as the original log cabin home of one of the town’s founding families, and in recent decades, as a history museum. Boards of both the Farmstead and the Farmers Market agreed that the location is an ideal setting to hold events, including the weekly market, as it directly ties into the agrarian heritage of the city.

The move to its new location also provides ample room for
the vendors, weekly musicians and picnic tables. It also provides plenty of customer parking and allows
for future expansion. The Pound House Farmstead and Farmers Market is located adjacent to Founders Memorial Park off Founders Park Road and can be accessed via Ranch Road 12 North or via Rob Shelton Boulevard off 290. Market hours are from 3 p.m. through 6 p.m. each Wednesday. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 5 p.m. on March 30.
