Join us from 3-6pm this Tuesday for special savings and a sneak peek of these fresh, timeless pieces.

Delight your senses at farmers markets in Austin!

At Wildflower Organics, we love organic bedding, mattresses and baby things... but every now and then we simply MUST give a big shout-out to our farmers.  Especially in this heat, it's important to support our local farmers.

Sourcing our food locally is extremely important. By Buying locally, we can stimulate the local economy and reduce the energy being used to transport food from region to region. Sustainable agriculture involves food production methods that are healthy, do not harm the environment , respect workers, are humane to animals, provide fair wages to farmers, and support farming communities. 

Small, local farms are run by farmers who live on their land and work hard to preserve it. By being good stewards of the land, seeking out local markets, minimizing packaging, and harvesting food only when it is ready to consume, farmers can significantly reduce their environmental impact.  In fact, studies show that sustainable agricultural practices can actually increase food production by up to 79$ while at the same time actively reducing the effexts of farming on climate change through carbon sequestration.

The goals of the Austin Farmers Market are to increase the economic vitality of local farmers and small businesses; increase awareness, knowledge and action among the Central Texas population about how to positively impact the Central Texas food system and their own health; and create vibrant economically and socially diverse city-centered gathering places.

We’re excited for the new innovative grocery store in Austin!

In.gredients is the first package-free, zero waste grocery store in the United States and it's coming right here to our hometown!

Americans add 570 million pounds of food packaging to their landfills each day, while pre-packaged foods force consumers to buy more than they need, stuffing their bellies and their trash bins: 27 percent of food brought into U.S. kitchens ends up getting tossed out.

The new grocery store will sell 100% package-free products. By buying food that's package-free, you have control over how much you buy. Portion control reduces waste. The store plans to sell everything regular grocery stores do—grains, seasonal produce, spices, daily products, meat, beer, wine and cleaning materials—minus the junk food. All the items in their store will be bought and sold locally, to stimulate the local economy and reduce the energy being used to transport food from region to region.

And they're nice too!

Their hope is to teach the community how just a few simple changes to the way we live can reduce waste and promote a better environment. Whether it's a demonstration at a local farmer's market or an afternoon spent teachingkids at on of Austin's elementary schools, they hope to be active in fostering a more sustainable community. They also plan to give customers the option to allocate a protion of their purchases to a charity we're involved with.
