This fall, Austin might be getting another farmers market. The Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center is reaching out to local farmers and vendors who might want to participate in a market the center is hoping to start later this year.

The market will have a focus on ethnic diversity, says organizer Vanessa Castro, with an emphasis on preserving and promoting Latino culture and foodways.

For more information on becoming a vendor, contact Castro at 512-974-3728 or vanessa.castro@austintexas.gov.
