Wolf Ranch Farmers Market

Opened on May 17, 2014, the Wolf Ranch Farmers Market is the beautiful marriage of two local Georgetown, Texas, businesses, Stouderhouse and Two Happy Children Farm, who have been farming and marketing in the Georgetown area for many years. 

Stouderhouse, owned by Stormy Souder, provides natural soap and beauty products for people all around the region. Two Happy Children Farm, owned by John and Yen Selking, is a diverse 90-acre vegetable operation near Taylor, Texas, that supports farmers’ market production as well as local restaurants. These two businesses wanted to provide an outlet for vendors in the area to get their products out to the public. Thus, their farmer’s market was born.

 

Providing natural products for people to enjoy is not just the mission of the Wolf Ranch Farmers Market; it is a way of life. Despite living in one of the fastest growing regions in the United States, the supply of local produce has been lagging for quite some time. Market founders John, Yen and Stormy believe that it is very important that local farmers find a local market for their production as well as introduce local farm to table chefs to the local farmers.

 

The Wolf Ranch Farmers Market participates in many unique opportunities throughout the year that sets it apart from other markets. On months with five Saturdays, a food vendor prepares over seventy dishes to distribute to everyone working at the market that day in hopes that it creates an appreciation for what other vendors are doing each week.

 

The farmer’s market also holds numerous tastings events throughout the year and encourages members of the community to get a firsthand look at the benefits of shopping locally. Local chefs, such as Jack Allen’s Kitchen, staff many of these tasting events which has included the “Farmers Breakfast,” where JAK served 350 breakfasts at the market using ingredients straight from the farmer’s trucks. Another tasting event was the “Peachapalooza,” in which Wolf Ranch Farmers Market provided peaches from their farmers to bakers who created peach-based products. Free samples were given out to hundreds of customers at the market and allowed for customers to experience the benefits of using locally grown products.

 

Jack's love and appreciation of supporting local farmers is what connected him to market founders John, Yen, and Stormy.  The founders first met Jack when they noticed a guy at their market that kept coming and buying out all of their cabbages one winter. “We thought he just had a love of cabbage,” the founders said. “It turns out it was Jack, who was really just doing everything he could to support local farming.”

 

Wolf Ranch Farmers Market truly enjoys everything that Jack Allen’s Kitchen is doing for local farmers and especially enjoys the seasonality of the Jack Allen’s Kitchen menu. Whether it the delicious fruit cobblers in the spring, or the tasty melon drinks and sweet corn in the summer, Wolf Ranch Farmers Market loves that Jack is able to provide an outlet for people to enjoy fresh food directly from the farms of their beloved farmers.

Established in Williamson County, Wolf Ranch Farmers Market provides a market for our local farmers and food producers who sell fresh and seasonal products. Located at 1015 W University Ave, Georgetown, TX 78628. Open rain or shine every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, please visit http://wolfranchfarmersmarket.com/.
