san antonio herb market association

As a non profit 501 (c) 3 Corporation, our mandate is to bring a knowledge of herbs to the community.  How to grow, cultivate and use them; how to cook with them and how to incorporate their many uses into a healthy lifestyle.  We do this through a variety of outreach events each year, starting with SAWS Spring Bloom being held each year at the SAWS San Antonio main campus, 281 South at N. St. Mary's where we bring out all of our information such as recipes, tee shirts, planting information, which herbs thrive in our San Antonio climate and much more.  And of course, purchase herb plants from our sister organization The San Antonio Herb Society...We then move on to our charitable event of the year, Basil Fest - where all our profits from the event go to supporting a different community group needing our help and yours each year.  We also participate in seminars, speaking events and classes, culminating in the annual October Herb Market at the Pearl Brewery which features the Herb of the Year in cooking demonstrations, tastings and handouts as well as herbal knowledge passed on from generation to generation.  Each year at Herb Market in October we showcase the herb of the year in our recipes, lectures and information.  This year - 2023 - we celebrate Ginger as the herb of the year and learn how to use, preserve, cook with and apply to supporting a healthy lifestyle.  Please join us and check out this site for dates and times appropriate to the events.
