Austin Public Health is collaborating with Austin Independent School District to open a COVID-19 Vaccination Site at the Toney Burger Center where our SFC Farmers’ Market at Sunset Valley is located.

To make room for this mass vaccination site, SFC is temporarily closing our Sunset Valley location and inviting our farmers, ranchers, and other vendors to join us at our SFC Farmers’ Market Downtown at Republic Square.

Our goal is to find an alternate location in South Austin/Sunset Valley for this market. Over the next few weeks, we will be researching possible locations and watching traffic patterns around the Toney Burger Center to choose the most accessible location for our South Austin shoppers.

Starting Saturday, March 13 and for the foreseeable future, you will be able to find over 80 vendors in the heart of Downtown Austin - that means all the fresh veggies, pasture-raised meats, eggs, local honey, and artisan-made goods you’ve ever dreamed about in one central location!

Stayed tuned to our website and social media accounts for updates as this situation develops.
