Farm to Market Report: Weekend of February 2-3

Can you believe it’s almost February? If you’ve made it this far without giving up on your new year’s resolutions, then congratulations! Eating healthier has always been a popular one, and though we’ll have to wait a few months for many of the markets to reopen, there are still opportunities to pick up some fresh food.

Dallas Farmers Market:

If you haven’t attended one of the winter cooking classes yet, don’t miss out on learning from Michael Scott, executive chef at Northwood Club. The theme is “Fresh Shellfish at the Market” and takes place Saturday from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Not a fan of seafood? You can attend “Love Potions: Chocolate, Tea, and Cookies” from 4-6 p.m. and learn how to make delicious treats for Valentine’s Day.

The new location will operate on the first and third Saturdays of the month, while the original location at Green Spot will open on the second and fourth Saturdays. Lakeside’s grand opening takes place March 2, and Green Spot will kick-off the new season on March 9. Be sure to attend both for live music and special events such as chef demos!
