A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of traveling south of Austin to San Antonio to visit the Legacy Outdoor Market. Joined by a couple of friends visiting from San Benito, we strolled from vendor to vendor, enjoying the sunny skies and the great bounty of fresh vegetables and delectable preserves the market has to offer. The market runs every Sunday from 10-3pm and is located at the northeast corner of US Highways 281N and 1604. If you are feeling like your fridge is overloaded with kale and turnips, there is still reason to stop by this charming weekly event. Legacy Outdoor Market features art and local music as well as handmade crafts such as candles, soap, and jewelry. Here are some snaps from the day. Enjoy!

Gulf shrimp from Mike's Seafood. Mike started selling seafood four years ago after a twenty-four year career in commercial fishing. His goods include wild-caught tuna, shrimp, and black drum as well as farm raised tilapia.
Bob of Uncertain Farms shows off jarred and preserved goods from his other venture, M Circle M, which features recipes passed down generation to generation. A word of advice: pick up a jar of Bob's Candied Jalapeños!
Canned peaches, cider and preserves are just a few of the products available from Circle H Orchards. Their 1,000 acre property is also home to pecan and pear trees.
Decorative succulents from Backyard Herbs. Other goods include herbs and vegetable seedlings
