Austin’s JBG Fresh Produce and So Much More at Pop-up Farmer’s Market at Jason Dady’s Two Bros. BBQ Market
Johnson’s Backyard Garden (JBG) and Ceres Vegetable Society in cooperation with Two Bros. BBQ Market are happy to announce a summertime shindig, an unusual pop-up farmers’ market celebrating organic produce as well as other local artisanal farmers’ and producers’ products. Each purchase of JBG’s mystery box of fresh seasonal produce will benefit the Ceres Vegetable Society, an international conservation nonprofit, whose mission it is to promote environmental awareness and preserve land for plant and animal habitat. If you want to get involved with this market, you have to pre-order (the details of which are below).
“It’s exciting to be in the San Antonio community and to exchange ideas with other talented farmers and producers. It is a pleasure to share the mission of the Ceres Vegetable Society as well,” said Brenton Johnson, Head Farmer of Johnson’s Backyard Garden and Founder of the Ceres Vegetable Society.
Enjoy JBG’s diverse array of over fifty different tomato varieties, radiant sunflowers, succulent hill country peaches, wild honey, organic eggs, fragrant coffee, and Leaven Bread’s delectable loaves from 6-8 p.m., Thursday, July 2, 2015, at Jason Dady’s Two Bros. BBQ Market located at 12656 West Ave, San Antonio, TX 78216.
Chef Elizabeth Johnson will be on site offering an organic, ayurvedic menu of local seasonal products, and spreading the word on the healing properties of food.
How it works:
Visit www.jbgorganic.com/blog/ceres-society and follow the instructions to reserve a mystery box. A mystery box is full of the freshest seasonal produce from Johnson’s Backyard Garden, a certified organic farm in east Austin. Once you reserve a mystery box, you are eligible to purchase an assortment of items from the aforementioned artisanal producers. JBG will also be offering their beloved inglorious vegetables, the just-as-delicious but less-photogenic produce, at a reduced rate.
