FFM is a producer/grower market consisting of farmers, ranches and wineries located within the geographic neighborhood of Gillespie and adjacent counties. FFM has been operating for four years in the Marktplatz, the center of Fredericksburg. In 2011, in partnership with the Pioneer Museum, we expanded to include a two-month fall market on Pioneer’s grounds to bring fall produce to the community and to emphasize the historical importance of agriculture to the local economy. We are growing and now have some 21 vendors that participate in the FFM. FFM is maintained by a group of volunteers whose goal is to bring good local food to the community, help our local farmers, ranchers and wineries sell product, and further promote Fredericksburg as a culinary arts center.
