Owners of the Quarry Farmers and Ranchers Market spent their last day in front of Whole Foods at the Quarry Sunday, and will re-open next week at 5300 McCullough.

Quarry Market management last month terminated their three-year agreement, forcing the popular market to find a new location.

Closing up the Brazos Valley Cheese booth at the Quarry farmers market for the last time, Susan Turner said her customers are happy about the new location at The Yard in Olmos Park.

San Antonio’s Alamo Quarry Market has terminated its agreement with the Quarry Farmers and Ranchers Market which has been operating in front of Whole Foods Market since 2011.

Now, owners are planning to re-open the farmers market in a different location.

The market has been a mainstay for residents and restaurant owners, selling fresh vegetables, natural meats and eggs, prepared foods and other products from the parking lot of the Quarry on Sunday mornings.

San Antonio is hosting a major food conference starting Wednesday, June 12, for everyone from growers to chefs to consumers. The target audience for the event: Anyone who eats food.

The conference will offer a broad base of information and activities including info for schools and other institutions, local chefs, the local grower and people who cook for their kids.

Lawmakers are thinking locally at the Capitol.

Texas House members will hear two bills today that seek to loosen rules on local agriculture by lowering restriction of raw milk sales to consumers and placing a cap on the amount of taxes levied on farmers at local markets.
