And as always, we are catering all the time! Contact us to inquire about what we offer.
First opening of the off-season will be Saturday, November 21st from 5-10 pm at Bananarchy NORTH (701 E 53rd Street).
Big news! After working towards this for some time, we have now switched chocolates! All of our chocolate is now 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 ethically-sourced 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.
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.
We were so honored by your support of our Kickstarter campaign. Your contributions have encouraged us greatly and given us the ability to open a second location in the near future. We would especially like to thank the following people and businesses for their generosity and love:

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