Celebrate Food in Austin this July!

By Jessica Stockton and Laura Bennett

Travel + Leisure Magazine recently named Austin as America’s Next Great Food Town for good reason. Austin is home to some of the country’s hottest stops for barbecue, sushi, sweet treats and more! Austinites love their food and there’s a day dedicated to our favorite foods all month long. Check out some of the sweetest holidays of the year and find out a few of our favorite spots in Austin to celebrate!

July 10: Pick Blueberries Day
Pick your own batch of blueberries at Boggy Creek Farm Stand or Green Gate Farms and New Farm Institute Education Center.

July 12: Pecan Pie Day
Not close enough to your grandma to eat her delicious pie? Bluebonnet Café or Royer’s Pie Haven should hit the spot.
