Between TRIBEZA Style Week, two music-filled ACL weekends and the upcoming Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix happening October 23-25, our fall calendar is booked solid. So this weekend, we’re carving out some time for a much-needed reprieve. While the city boasts plenty of breezy patios to enjoy midday sips and snacks, why not take advantage of Austin’s greenspaces to set the scene for your own picnic?
This Sunday, we are hitting up one of the best markets in town, the Texas Farmers’ Market at Mueller, to make our very own DIY picnic. If you’re like us, we think that sometimes the best plans require no planning. Skip the grocery list; the local purveyors always offer high quality goods and the season’s best produce, making shopping a foolproof experience. And the best part? The market sits in the middle of an expansive family-friendly park replete with a glittering lake, scenic hike and bike trails, a children’s playground and lush lawns, which makes finding a sunny spot for your spread a breeze.
