Where to get farm fresh produce in Austin during covid-19

This crazy virus! It’s causing all sorts food issues. Grocery stores are experiencing food shortages, mostly due to panic and food hoarding  (please don’t do that! There’s enough to go around if we all stay calm and purchase normal amounts of food), so I’ve had people reach out on instagram asking me where they can get farm fresh produce in Austin during COVID-19. I’m rounding up a bunch of resources for you, but please add more in the comments if I left something out!

  • Snack Share: I literally just placed an order with them before typing this up! I have some eggs, wagyu beef, green onions, kombucha, chocolate bars, hummus, and snack bars arriving on Sunday, and it’s all local. This incredible service hand selects local farm fresh goodies , and delivers them to your door on Sundays and Mondays. Order ahead on the website. |WEBSITE|
  • Vinder. Restaurants are now allowed to re-sell their produce, meat, and other raw ingredients. Vinder is an app that allows restaurants and others to register as sellers. Download the app, and find someone near you who’s selling fresh produce, herbs, eggs, or baking goods like flour and sugar. |WEBSITE|
  • Prep To Your Door. While this isn’t a box of produce, it is a delivery service that offers homemade meals made from high quality ingredients from Texas farms. You get to enjoy all the benefits of that yummy local produce, minus the work! Pick a subscription of 5, 10, 15, or 20 meals per week. |WEBSITE|
  • Lettuce: This one is SO cool. Rather than using Hello Fresh or Blue Apron or something else that has wasteful packaging and food that is delivered from far away, Lettuce sources local food to support nearby farms, and they have zero-waste packaging. |WEBSITE|
  • Farmhouse Delivery is full right now, but you can put your name on the wait list and check back to see if any openings become available. |WEBSITE|
  • Farm To Table ATX is another fantastic service that delivers locally grown farm products to your home. They’re also full right now and aren’t accepting any new customers for home delivery, but check back often! |WEBSITE

Restaurants With Produce:

Today is Tuesday and we are open 12-8 with an ever-increasing selection of grocery items, plus meats in the case and to-go food. 1. Today’s Produce Bundle because “Bag” sounds weird: avocados (these are from Texas, not those hippie-assed @california avocados; ours have tough skins but are actually quite delicate and sweet on the inside), grapefruit, chard, romaine, arugula and ruby streak mustards to punish your kids with and carrots. 2. Essentials. You didn’t know handmade oyster sauce was an essential? Neither did we. Eggs, butter, Stryk cheddar, @southsidecraftsoda, beers, wines, animal fats, and when @farmtotabletx gets their sweet asses here, some milk. 3. Today’s menu. This involves cheeseburgers, pastrami sandwiches and gumbo, or maybe you’re feeling a quail parm or HH&C and some pudding. #isaidasstwice
