Farm to Market submitted by pete
Basically, this place is a smaller South Austin alternative to Wheatsville. They have a couple aisles of groceries, a small produce section, natural household cleaning products, and some beer and wine, among others. They sell a couple of different brands of agave nectar, as well as the "Monterey Jack" flavor of the Vegan Gourmet cheese. They are pretty pricey - most notably, a 1/2 gallon of Silk cost over $4! However, the aforementioned cheese substitute was $4.29, which is what Whole Foods charges. Expect Whole Foods-ish prices throughout the store. For those of you who live in South Austin and want to support a small local store, despite the prices, this could be your place. Located at 1718 S. Congress.

    Is this South Austin's response to Wheatsville, or is it smaller than that?

      It's pretty small. "Cozy" is a good term to describe it. Not a hole-in-the-wall, but definitely much smaller than Wheatsville. I'd say a 1/3 of the size, but that's only a guess.

    This is South Austin's really really shitty response to Wheatsville. They no longer carry Vegan Gourmet (the only reason I went there). There produce is ridiiiiiiiiiiiiiculously overpriced and its pretty unorganized. Take the time to go to Wheatsville.
