Longtime Austin bakery Texas French Bread’s wares are now available for the first time since January, at both locations of Texas Farmers Market. Texas French Bread is selling its breads, cookies, and pastries at Lakeline on Saturdays and Mueller on Sundays. Texas French Bread’s building was destroyed in a fire in January, but its bakery operations moved to commercial kitchen space Prep ATX in July to be able to continue baking. Owner Murph Willcott is also planning to open a food truck at the 2900 Rio Grande Street address in the fall.

Pizzeria and taproom Aviator Pizza & Drafthouse is opening a third Austin location in Mueller in October, at 1905 Aldrich Street, as reported by Community Impact. Aviator is known for pizzas, wings, and a massive wall of beer taps. The local mini-chain opened in Elgin in 2014 before expanding to South Austin in 2016.
