These are what many consider the “dog days of summer” — the hottest days of the year in the Texas Hill Country. By now, we are all going a little stir crazy sitting inside waiting for it to cool down. No worries! Just because it’s hot outside, doesn’t mean there aren’t any cool events to get you out of the house.

This week, we go shopping! Not just any kind of shopping, but the kind of shopping that brings communities together. From farmer’s markets to yard sales, there will be plenty of goodies to sift through that will cater to anyone’s tastes. Bring plenty of water and head out to one of these fine events this week:
