Farm to Market Report: Weekend of March 16

farmersMarket_02_char11Get excited, everyone! Winter is winding down to its last days. Starting March 20, we can look forward to Easter eggs, spring cleaning, and strawberries coming back into season (finally!). Oh, and crawfish season is in full swing! But alas, let’s return to the items that will be at the markets this weekend.

Coppell Farmers Market: Coppell is still in their weekend market season and will be closed this Saturday. Mark your calendars for April 6 because that is when they will be open every weekend! Check back next week for happenings at Coppell.

793 S. Coppell Rd.
Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Cowtown Farmers Market: The next farmers market to kick off its spring season is Cowtown’s Westside location! Join Cowtown for a festival and enjoy the sounds of live music by Barbara Taylor and Friends. For those of you who don’t have much of a green thumb, don’t miss out on the gardening demonstrations presented by Harvest Supply. The festival and events will take place in the parking lot of Texas Outdoors and Edelweiss Restaurant near the market.

Four Seasons Market: This Saturday at Four Seasons, stop by to try some Ipanema cheese bread. Sounds delicious, right? Florine Bowman will be there with her pastries that blend American and French flair, such as cranberry scones, raisin rolls, and apple yogurt muffins. If you’re looking for something to make dinner before your dessert, visit Lucido’s Pasta for the widest variety of linguine, angel hair, and bow tie pasta.

Grand Prairie Farmers Market: Celebrate St. Patty’s Day at Grand Prairie this Saturday with corned beef and a magic leprechaun! Did I mention the green beer?
