Boggy Creek Farm submitted by simon
A mere two and one-half miles east of Downtown, Boggy Creek Farm is located in Central East Austin, at 3414 Lyons Rd, a couple blocks above East 7th, between pleasant valley and springdale road.

While much of the produce is grown at the Farm in East Austin, space-hogging varieties, such as hard squashes, tomatoes and potatoes, are grown at their Milam County Farm, 75 miles northeast of Austin. Produce grown there is typically harvested the morning before market day (contrast this time frame with the typical two-week age of grocery store produce).

Every Wednesday and Saturday, from 9am to 2pm, they hold a farm stand market, where freshly picked produce is available for sale on a first come first served basis, I can HIGHLY recommend their broccoli greens.

      it's a mix of prices, changing throughout the season, sometimes based upon availabilty. A bit like the farmers market. organic greens are about the same as the store, tomatoes more xpensive and some squash and cucumbers less expensive. The main benefit is that it is fresh from the field, never refrigerated. even the freshest store produce is weeks old.
