Sometime back we visited Boerne, TX and found that it did not live up to it’s hype. This weekend we found a reason to visit Boerne, and will actually go back more often. We ventured to The Farmers Market at the Cibolo https://www.cibolo.org/herfffarm/farmersmarket.html. It is located at the Cibolo Nature Center and Farm (Herff Farm). The farmers market is less than a mile off the main road in Boerne outside the Historic District. Be sure to visit the website to learn more about the Cibolo Nature Center and Herff Farm. You will find out about the history and and plans for the farm and nature center.
The farm is located at 33 Herff Road, Boerne. It is open every Saturday from March to December from 9-1. Admission is free (love when I find a free place 😀❤️). While it is not a large market, it does have some great products to choose from at reasonable prices and live music.
We ended up walking out with a couple jars of homemade pickles, a couple jars of homemade strawberry-rhubarb jam, cake pops for the kids, coffee, homemade granola, and some delicious Mediterranean-style desserts.
Zoozoo’s Sweet Treats (and more) had some delicious homemade baklava and lemon tarts. I would definitely recommend that you visit their tent when you go to the farmers market. They are there every Saturday. But if you get a hankering to try some of their goodies before a Saturday, you can contact the owner, Azza Mohamed at firstname.lastname@example.org. She does live in San Antonio so you would not have to worry about the Boerne traffic to get some homemade Mediterranean desserts.
Other vendors included fresh eggs, produce, meats, homemade salsas, plants, and baked goods.
The historic home on the farm has been restored and information about the well and rain harvesting system can be found near the watershed and rainwater tank.
We also found some trails to walk through. To my delight the trails had wildflowers to enjoy and photograph. We were not able to spend too much time walking through the trails, so we will definitely be making another trip out there.
I would love to see how this place looks in the spring with all the amazing colors that Texas wildflowers provide. While the actual historic district of Boerne is not my cup of tea, there are definitely some hidden places in Boerne to check out, the farmers market is one of those places!
