Flash back or be introduced to tie-dye and other hippie wares at this crafts market near the UT campus, where vendors are licensed by the City of Austin (read: no commercial schlock). Started in the early 1970s and billed as the only continuously operated open-air crafts market in the United States, it’s theoretically open daily 8am to 10pm, but most merchants turn up only on Saturday and Sunday. You’ll find everything from silver jewelry and hand-carved flutes to batik T-shirts. Many of the artisans come in from small towns in the nearby Hill Country.
