Farm to Market roads are everywhere in Texas. Historically, these roads were built to connect farmers and ranchers to their communities. Texas’ Farm to Market Road System is the most extensive secondary highway system in the United States. Permanent funding was established for FM roads in 1949; these roads now account for 41,000 miles of Texas’ 73,000 miles of highway. 

Today, farmer's markets are a popular go-to for those looking to get outside and shop locally. But these markets do so much more; they help preserve farmlands, stimulate local economies, increase access to nutritious food, and promote sustainability. The Cibolo is proud to host a year-long weekly farmers market for the growing Boerne community and has for nearly ten years.

Every Saturday morning at the Farmers Market at Herff Farm, vendors roll in with their trailers, tubs of goodies, and crates full of handmade crafts, ready to greet you with a smile. They sell everything from homemade soaps to handmade bread, fresh jams, locally roasted coffee, artisan crafts, leather goods, and beautiful native plants.

The feeling of community at the Farmers Market has never been stronger. Our extended market season has been met with an outpouring of support from the Boerne community, and we’ve welcomed many new vendors. To better serve the growing population, we seek more produce vendors to add to our excellent market. Contact Bri Corpus at and visit the market every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Follow us on social media, @farmersmarketatherfffarm.
