Closed for Winter

We are closed for winter.  But–we will be opening up one day per month during the off-season to keep hope alive.  Stay updated on our Facebook page or sign up for our email list to get notified!

First opening of the off-season will be Saturday, November 21st from 5-10 pm at Bananarchy NORTH (701 E 53rd Street).


Fair Trade Chocolate

Big news!  After working towards this for some time, we have now switched chocolates!  All of our chocolate is Fair Trade Certified logo MS Paint interpretationnow Fair Trade Certified, which means that standards are in place to ensure that all workers involved in the process of farming and processing the chocolate are paid fairly, given safe working conditions, and allowed to thrive.  We hope that by offering this in addition to our already Fair Trade bananas, we can continue to grow as a socially responsible company.

In addition, our regular chocolate and our vegan chocolate are now the same chocolate.  The only difference is that the vegan chocolate is kept separate to prevent cross-contamination from the other dippings.

For vegans:
This chocolate does not contain dairy, but it was crafted on equipment previously used for milk chocolate, and it does contain sugar (certified Fair Trade).   If you have any questions about this, you can reach us through the form under the “Contact” tab.

Kickstarter for Second Location

Hello, friends! After six years of being open, we are ready to make steps towards opening a second location. In order to raise the funds for this, we are launching a Kickstarter campaign today! Check it out! Contribute and you can get some pretty cool rewards! We would also love it if you would share it with your friends/acquaintances/enemies/the next cop to pull you over/etc.!  Every dollar contributed helps.  Kickstarter is all-or-nothing funding, so we don’t get any of the pledges unless we can raise all of the money ($17,000).  Help us spread the banana revolution to more of Austin!  You can donate now through April 19 at 9:58 pm.

Here is the link.

Love you all.



Bananarchy Protests (at) SXSW 2015

Happy first day of banana season! This year we are representing the bananarchist cause downtown at SXSW again! If you see us, tweet or Instagram a picture @bananarchyatx (or tag us on Facebook). Then come by the banana stand and show us the picture to get a free halfsie!



Reopening Monday, March 16.

We’ll be reopening for the 2015 season this Monday, March 16. Same location. Love you all.Milly Vanilly with sprinkles



Closed for Winter

Dear bananarchists,

The banana stand is currently closed for the winter and will be reopening in mid-March as usual.  You can keep updated on future developments (including possible off-season cameo appearances) here or on our Facebook page.  You can also request catering through our contact form here.

Stay strong and keep the hope!



Are you ready?


Opening March 10. Protest March 8.

My dear bananarchists,

Bananarchist with protest sign

It has been a long time since we’ve seen some of you.  The winter has been harsh, and the hearts of some grew cold.  Please know that during this time we have been working behind the scenes toward the bananarchist cause, wrestling against our own natures to prevent ourselves from slipping into the apathy we were afraid would plague us.  Through this struggle, we visited other communities, raised awareness about bananarchist issues, and did time in several Latin American prisons.  In the end, our hearts awoke into a new, more ardent vision for frozen banana freedom.

We will be opening again for the season on March 10.

Before that, on the 8th, we will be protesting against Cakeism, materialism, Cupcakeism, Ice Creamism, and commercialism, etc. downtown from 1-8 pm at 6th and San Jacinto.  Come protest with us if you can and receive a coupon for a free frozen banana.  Stay updated on Twitter in case we have to move.

Thank you for keeping the hope and fighting the fight.



Bananarchy Valentine’s Fête Costumée

Raspberry Truffle BananaDear bananarchists,

As you know, we are currently closed for the season. However–

In some kind of miracle, possibly formed from the detritus of all Christmas miracles everywhere, then driven, sluggishly, by Christmas cheer’s toothless mother, through New Year’s Day and MLK Day and Mozart’s birthday, until finally emerging as a great ball of seasoned holiday potential, ready to burst forth and wreak its havoc upon unsuspecting passersby–we have decided to open up for a few hours on Valentine’s Day.

Have you thought yet about what to do for your beloved or beliked on this Day of all Days? Think no more! Bring them here!

Don’t have a beloved or beliked, or not one that approves of you using this terminology? How about someone on hard times, that could really use a kind banana? Take this opportunity to show love that might not be paid back.

We will have a LIMITED menu this day, due to the complicated nature of opening up for only a day in the off season. Featuring: RASPBERRY TRUFFLE BANANA!! Stay tuned for more menu details. We will definitely also have vegan chocolate.

Please dress up, as it is a fête costumée, which my friend Internet tells me means “fancy-dress party.” For you, this may mean your best cutoffs and a new scarf. For others, it may mean a suit. Or a space suit.

Hope to see you there.


Opening goes from 6-10 pm.  RSVP on Facebook here!
