Savory Farmers Market at The ColonyApril 8, 2022 6:10 am
When most people think of farmers markets, they picture fresh produce stacked high on tables. They imagine the bustling hum of local shoppers and the kind of ingredients that make meals that taste great and provide more nutrition while supporting the local economy and food security network.
A farmers market elevates the whole community. Locally grown food can be hard to come by in many parts of the country. The wide variety of high-quality ingredients available at farmers markets brings the whole community healthy food, while putting the money back into the local economy.
But what’s even more special about our own Savory Farmer’s Market, held every fourth Friday at The Colony in Bastrop, TX is that you not only get access to some of the highest-quality produce you can buy, but you can also pick up unique works by local artists and artisans.
Check out some of the vendors at the Savory Farmers Market that you won’t want to miss!
Lakonia Imports: Olive Oil directly imported from the family farm in Greece.
According to world-renowned olive oil experts at Brightland, it’s estimated that over 70% of olive oil is fake. Since legitimate olive oil is so expensive to produce, a lot of people in the supply chain dilute and/or counterfeit products that claim to be extra virgin olive oil.
But not Lakonia Imports. From the farm to the farmer’s market, there are no middlemen to dilute products or blend vegetable oils to widen their profit margins. Lakonia Imports is a family operation from the ground up.
If you’ve never tasted real, pure olive oil, which is entirely likely considering the state of the olive oil industry, you need to try the real stuff.
Every fourth Friday in Bastrop, TX, you get the opportunity to purchase arguably the best European olive oil available. Because you’re buying it directly from the producer, you can be certain that it isn’t diluted or tampered with before it reaches your dinner plate.
Savory Alaska: Wild-Caught Alaskan Seafood
Did you know that salmon fishermen in Alaska are a key to keeping the river ecosystems in balance? If too many Salmon spawn upstream, the river gets overburdened with fish.
Fishermen work with ecologists to catch a certain percentage of pre-spawned salmon before they enter the estuaries. That way, our fisheries stay in the best shape possible, and we all get to eat delicious, wild-caught seafood from Alaska.
It’s thanks to our biologists and fishermen that companies like Savory Alaska can offer up fresh seafood in Bastrop, TX season after season. It doesn’t get much fresher than that!
They offer five species of Alaskan salmon (King, Sockeye, Coho, Pink, and Keta), Halibut, Black Cod (Sablefish), Yellow Eye Rockfish, Black Rockfish, and Lingcod.
