Farm to Market Report: Weekend of March 9-10

farmersMarket_02_char11Welcome back, shoppers! Did you miss me? (Just smile and nod, everyone). I hope things are looking up for you as they are for me; we only have two more weeks of the roller coaster ride that is Dallas’ winter season, but most importantly, the markets are starting to reopen. There are some new vendors and lots of exciting events this weekend, so be sure to get out of the house and enjoy it all!

Coppell Farmers Market: Calling all eco-conscious people! Make sure to stop by on Saturday to visit the new vendor, Good Earth Organic Farm which will have produce, organic lamb, and free-range eggs. If that’s not enough to entice you, at least eight artisan producers have added items to the March Flavors of the Month, such as almond croissants from Village Baking Company and chocolate chip cookie dough cakeballs from A Ray of Cakes. Other items to look for: dried peppers, onions, lettuces, hothouse tomatoes, pastured beef, pork, chicken, lamb, and a variety of seafood.

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

Four Seasons Market: Visit Four Seasons on Saturday to pick up flavored popcorn from Carnival Popcorn, grass-fed beef from Terra Sienna, and artisan breads from Empire Baking. Among the non-food vendors, expect to find items like handmade jewelry, soy candles, garden décor, and even luxury soaps from Stardust Soaps.

677 W. Campbell Rd.
Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

White Rock Local Market: White Rock had a great time last weekend kicking off the opening of their new Lakeside location, but the celebration didn’t end there. Be sure to stop by the market’s Green Spot location for their fifth anniversary! Get inspired to cook something new by watching demonstrations from local chefs Brian Luscher of Post Oak Red Hots, Randall Copeland of Restaurant Ava, and Chad Houser of Café Momentum. You can also enjoy live music and hourly food and drink specials, such as $0.99 breakfast tacos and free coffee. The little ones will be sure to have fun at the coloring table, watching the juggler, and drinking free punch.

702 N. Buckner Blvd.
Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
