Ripe: A Spirited Market at Éilan is San Antonio’s newest, most beautiful farmer’s market located on the Promenade at The Éilan Hotel & Spa on La Cantera Boulevard within the mixed-use community of Éilan Ripe will kick off its season on Sunday, June 23, with three summer preview markets (held the third Sunday of June, July, and August) before launching weekly on Sunday, September 8.
Curated by celebrity chef Stephan Pyles (his restaurant Sustenio, devoted to local and sustainable ingredients, is located at Éilan and adjacent to the market) and well-known food writer and cookbook author Paula Disbrowe, Ripe will be a foodie destination with an ongoing calendar of market-driven dinners, culinary events (including cooking demos and cookbook signings), and wine and spirits tastings. With weekly live music and plenty of fun for the whole family (including face painting, activities, and arts and crafts for kids) Ripe will also provide plenty of reasons to linger into the evening.
Ripe is a farmer and artisans market devoted to local, sustainably-minded producers sharing gorgeous produce grown by passionate farmers and enticing artisan foodstuffs. Ripe will be a multi-tiered experience that offers an array of activity framed by the stunning backdrop of Éilan’s Tuscan-inspired architecture. A circular drive at the base of the resort will feature a food truck rodeo (the perfect option for snacking and casual Sunday dinner). A patio surrounding a bubbling fountain will feature an array of vendors; ascend the stairs for more shopping and live music under a gazebo outside of Sustenio.
