In case y’all missed out on the fun, here’s a taste of our one year anniversary party. We raised over $400 for TreeFolks, celebrated with our Cherrywood neighbors and rang in our anniversary in style.
You can see more photos on our Facebook page!
This weekend will mark our one year anniversary! We think that’s something worth celebrating, and we’d love to party with y’all. Check out what we’ve got going on all week and what we have planned for Sunday.
Tuesday: $7 for a Panini & and Pint of Choice
Wednesday: Free Chocosutra Bon Bon with your Panini
Thursday: $5 off in.gredients t-shirt or tank top
Friday: $2 off Growler Fills, $1 off Growlers and Boston Round Glassware
Saturday: Happy Hour All Day
Sunday: Happy Hour from 6-10 pm, $5 off t-shirts and tank tops and specialty beer cocktails from id Soda
On Sunday, to celebrate our paper anniversary, we’re raising money for TreeFolks, a local non-profit growing Central Texas urban forests through tree planting, education and community partnerships. When you drink one of Rogness Brewing Company’s Beardy Guard (a reddish amber ale), half of the profits will go directly to TreeFolks. Our goal is to raise enough money to plant 12 trees, one for every month we’ve been open! Drink beer AND raise money to plant trees. Win/win.
We will also be joined by the fellas from Fine Southern Gentlemen, who will print limited edition designs from in.gredients, Windmill Bicycles, Little Yoga House and Anis Mojgani (who designed our poster!) on anything you’d like screen printed. The best part? It’s free! Bring your t-shirts or reusable bags and get them beautified. We will also have a photo booth set up by our favorite pals at East Side Compost Pedallers, which always makes for a good time.
Last but not least, it wouldn’t be an event without a little friendly competition. Go out into Austin, snap a picture of your favorite tree (or your interpretation of a tree) and tag it with #treesofATX. The best photo will get a prize at the party.
We hope to see you there!
We’ve been open for almost one year! We’re honored to serve our community fresh, local food and want to throw a big party to show our appreciation. We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the amazing farmers, ranchers, artisans and customers supporting our store.
On Sunday, August 4th from 6-10 we will be having our anniversary party and we’d love to see you there. We will have live music from The Blue Bird Specials, Patrick’s Beard, Rebecca Patek and Andrew Macdonald. As well as local brews, local food and local fun. We also realize it wouldn’t be a true in.gredients event with out a fundraiser. We’re teaming up with the fine folks from TreeFolks to raise some cash to plant a few more trees around Austin. It’s our paper anniversary, after all.
We will also be joined by Fine Southern Gentleman and their bicycle screen printing press. Make sure to bring your t-shirts, tote bags or anything else that needs to be beautified and get a free commemorative in.gredients print designed by local poet and artist Anis Mojgani (he also designed our incredible event poster.) We will have family friend activities and will be joined by some of our favorite local businesses and organizations. It’ll be a hoot, we guarantee it.
You can find more details about the event on our Facebook event page.
Summer is the perfect time to focus on healthy, plant-based meals. With temperatures in the triple digits, sticking to a diet full of locally grown produce is a refreshing way to beat the heat and survive this Texas summer.
We’re lucky that there are so many healthy, active and knowledgable folks here in Austin. We’re even luckier to be teaming up with Traveling Recipes for our first Community Cooking Class. Traveling Recipes was created by Andi, a former teacher who left the public school system to work on changing the way our community eats. She believes in forming a relationship with your food, eating lots of vegetables, and getting creative in the kitchen.
Andi is a food coach, private chef, nutrition educator and food blogger. Andi’s workshops inspire improved eating habits, increase knowledge of nutrition and whole foods while enhancing overall wellness. Our community class will teach you how to cook easy and wholesome food while having a great time. We will be sourcing and highlighting produce from several of our beloved local farms. Not only will you cook amazing food, you’ll know exactly where it came from and celebrate in the fact that you’re supporting your local food system.
If you have a little one, feel free to bring them! The wonderful ladies from The Little Yoga House will be joining us for the evening, providing yoga and fun activities for your kids while you’re cooking. The cost for the yoga class is $20 per child, cash or check only. If you do plan on bringing your little one along, please send us an RSVP email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you like food, new friends and delicious beverages (we even have kombucha on tap!) join us on Saturday, July 20th from 6-8 pm for our first Wine & Dine Community Cooking Class.
Sometimes, all you need is boys (I mean men…) in short shorts to fundraise some money. We teamed up with the folks from Windmill Bicycles, East Side Compost Pedallers and HOPE Farmers Market to put on this ridiculously awesome event to raise money for the HOPE Mobile Farm Stand.
With the mobile farm stand, individuals, community gardens and small urban & rural farms can apply to sell their crates of bumper crops or small baskets of garden veggies to sell to the Farm Stand. Funds raised by the project go directly towards supporting HOPE Farmers’ Market and their food stamp acceptance program. The farm stand is bicycle powered, so it will go where farmers markets and fresh produce isn’t readily available.
We’re smitten with the farm stand and its goal of bringing more fresh food to our neighborhood. Our silliness raised over $400 for the event, which we count as an overall win
The pictures of the event really speak for themselves… You’re welcome.
It’s officially Spring in Texas!
With the new season comes some serious spring bounty. To celebrate, we’re hosting another Homegrown Revival dinner on Tuesday, May 21.
For those of you who haven’t heard about The Homegrown Revival, get ready to be inspired. This incredible local non-profit brings education and local food to the table. By hosting dinners, making videos and sharing recipes they’re educating consumers on how to prepare and consume fresh and nutritious food within their communities.
We can’t think of a better partner to share in our love of food. Come join us for our spring dinner where Chef Sonya Cote will be sourcing produce from our Urban Patchwork garden and other nearby farms. Watch as she turns food into art and dishes up a fresh, healthy and local dinner for every lucky guest. To make the dinner even more exciting, the one and only Tink Pinkard will join us with some “big fish” stories contributing whatever protein he happened to procure that week.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get better, it does. We’re teaming up with the Homegrown Revival to offer up the opportunity to win two tickets to this meal. During the month of April, stop by in.gredients to pick up your in.gredients loyalty card. Every time you spend $15 or more at in.gredients, you get a stamp. At the end of the month, turn in your loyalty card and whoever has collected the most stamps will win two tickets to the spring Homegrown Revival dinner at in.gredients (that’s a $130 value!)
Let’s celebrate the return of spring and gather around local food. Tickets for the dinner are $65, and can be purchased here. Please know that this dinner will be filmed as part of a cooking show, so feel free to come dressed… well, exactly how you are because that’s why we love you.
South By is upon us, and we have in.vited musicians from all over Austin and all over the world to come by our space and record a few songs inside the store in front of a live audience. We call these in.sessions, and we’re pretty excited about who we’ve got lined up this year.
These shows are free and open to our customers to attend, but please be aware that space inside is limited, so we will have to manage the number of people allowed in during recording. Don’t worry, though – we’ll be piping the music outside to our beer garden all the while, so everyone will have a chance to enjoy the live tunes.
This year we’re also doing Porch Sessions, which will be short acoustic sets on our front porch from a similarly diverse collection of musicians. Expect free live music all day Friday and Saturday starting at noon. Here’s to living in the live music capital of the world!

Have you listened to a TED talk yet?
If you haven’t, picture this: influential people giving short lectures on things that matter. With the mission, “ideas worth sharing”, TED talks were developed to showcase the convergence between technology, entertainment and design. Since 1983 the format of TED talks has changed and expanded, offering up unique presentations to stimulate dialogue on a variety of issues.
One addition has been the TEDx program. The TEDx talks are designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to create dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. There seems to be one popping up in every city, creating a culture of knowledge and innovation around the world.
While scrolling through the list of TEDx talks, we were excited to see that TEDx Manhattan’s theme is Changing the Way We Eat. This day long conference on Saturday, February 16th, brings together leaders from the food community to present on why our food system matters, and what needs to change.
Knowledge is meant to be shared, so we’re hosting a screening of the TEDx talk at in.gredients. We’ve invited local food leaders from our community to come be a part of the event and help facilitate discussions about our local food scene.
Come join us on Saturday, February 16th from 9:30-4:30 for this inspiring TEDx talk. We’ll have snacks available as well as food and drink specials. Our sponsors, Pate Letelier and Third Coast Coffee, will be providing some delicious local goodies during the conference. Afterwards we’ll have a social happy hour so we can discuss all the new ideas and information we’ve gleaned from the TEDx talk. If you want to attend, check out the schedule details here and RSVP so we can prepare snacks and drinks accordingly.
We’ll see you there!
We were all at the Homegrown Revival dinner because we love food. This was apparent as the big smiles mingled with the occasional gasps and applause when the food was presented.
Started in Austin, the Homegrown Revival exists to educate, inspire and get people talking about local, farm grown food. Using community building events such as pop up dinners, they gather people together to enjoy a meal prepared by Austin’s own Sonya Cote – owner of the Hillside Farmacy.
These pop up dinners feature all things local. The dinner hosted at in.gredients last night featured produce from Tecolote farm while the meat was hunted and prepared by Tink, the Revival’s outfitter.
When you have a dinner that is sourced from nearby, you get to know its story. Before digging into the plate of heavenly scented duck and deer, we learned exactly where the meat came from, and got to shake hands with the hunter.
We’ve come to the conclusion that local tastes better.
Living in the urban farm hub that is Austin, chef Sonya Cote takes the idea of farm-to-table dining to a whole new level. As a nationally recognized chef, Sonya’s food is breathtaking (in every sense of the word). When you eat one of her creations, you can taste the thought, energy and understanding that went into the dish. I had no idea that a cauliflower gratin could taste that amazing. During the dinner, five courses were served, family style, over two hours. This invited people to meet and share in all things delicious.
Food really does bring people together, and with organizations like the Homegrown Revival you get to discover what local tastes like on a whole new level. With monthly pop-up dinners, as well as a variety of other events, there is always something to look forward to. You can find more information about the organization here, and make sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter so you can jump on a ticket when the next dinner is announced.
We adore Hops and Grain.
Not only do they give a portion of their annual revenue to local environmental non-profit organizations, they reuse their recycled grains to make brew biscuits for the dogs in our lives.
A business that makes beer, strives for sustainability AND makes tasty treats for man’s best friend? We think they’re all kinds of awesome.
To continue our celebration of Eat, Drink Local week we’re having a Keep the Pint Night this evening, starting at 6 pm. This dog-friendly event is all about the beer. We will have pint glasses to give away to the first 50 people, growlers to raffle off and dog treats for any and all four-legged friend you want to bring.
The celebration kicks off at 6 pm and we will have three tasty Hops and Grain brews on tap.
We will have the ALT-eration, the limited ALTeration which has been aged in bourbon barrels, and the Pale Dog. You can check out what these beers are below.
We will see y’all tonight!
(make sure to bring your dogs – they’ll appreciate the free dog treats, you’ll appreciate the beer)
