Farmers Market in Fredericksburg Texas

June 8th, 2010 by Lynn MacWithey

Quite a selection!

Every Thursday afternoon from 4-7 PM, Fredericksburg hosts a Farmers Market 

 in our downtown square.  What a great reason to visit the Texas Hill Country on a weekday this summer! Smaller crowds and uncrowded restaurants  make weekdays an ideal time to visit.  Come stay with us and we’ll send you peach picking and to the market for food and fun!  Enjoy just picked produce, grass fed beef, Dorper lamb and homemade breads!

Peaches in the Texas Hill Country

May 21st, 2010 by Lynn MacWithey

Peach season has finally arrived!  All the conditions are excellent for a great crop this summer.  Stands are open now with the first peaches available.  They will continue to be available through the first part of August with the best peaches (Freestones) usually abundant in July.  Marburger Orchard  – just up the road from Das Garten Haus, has peach picking available with beautiful views of the Texas Hill Country. The best picking time is early in the morning, right after breakfast

Stands are open with early peaches!
