Grazeology and More Stuff to Do in Austin This Weekend

A Story By

Your plans for this week and the weekend have just arrived! From new restaurants and coffee shops to an actual concert. Don’t worry, social distancing will be practiced because this concert is taking place from your car, in a parking lot!

That is just the beginning, there are plenty more things to do in Austin this week you have to check out for yourself!

Did You Hear?

Picnics have made a major comeback in 2020 and we are not mad about it. We can all appreciate an evening in Zilker Park watching the sunset and taking in the beauty of the Austin skyline.

Grazeology is here to take your picnic to the next level with customized cheese trays. From mini grazing boxes (pictured above), perfect for two, to full-blown grazing tables you could quite literally swim in, they have your cheese needs covered. Bring a bottle of wine along and you are set for the perfect date night, picnic with a good friend, or an evening of peace with yourself!

Looking for more places to picnic than Zilker Park? We have created a guide to the best spots to picnic in Austin so all you need to do is order your Grazeology box and head out to a new picnic spot to enjoy it!

Nothing compares to a trip to your local farmers’ markets to pick up some unique foods and other goods. You can always find surrounding colors of fresh produce, new faces passing by, and the smells and tastes of crisp, natural flavors. 

Fortunately for all of us, there are some great farmers’ markets in Austin. Check out some of our favorite spots across the city!

We have included the current COVID-19 protocols these markets are taking to ensure the safety of both guests and vendors.
