CUSTOMERS have always been at the heart of Thom’s Market
We feature hundreds of items, all customer requested, from local and artisanal food vendors. Tacodeli breakfast tacos? We have them. Wine enthusiasts can enjoy our lovely selection of wines, hand-selected from the finest boutique vineyards. If you prefer hops, we also carry a spread of Austin-based craft beers.
Thom’s Market was inspired after a year-long sailing trip with my family provisioning our boat with fresh groceries required hiking to local stores wherever we anchored. I soon realized old-school grocery stores, like my grandfather's, had mostly vanished. It led me to wonder if a local neighborhood market featuring fresh food could work in Austin.
Each location features a variety of outdoor gear including sunglasses, hats, beach towels, frisbees and sunscreen. Perfect for trips to Zilker Park or Barton Springs. Need a cool gift? Look no further for fun socks, toys, greeting cards and candles.
Please stop in and say howdy!
