Along with healthy produce, there will be arts and crafts vendors and a diverse selection of local goods. Vickery Meadows Local Market is currently seeking vendors for the initial season. To apply go to whiterocklocalmarket.org.
“We are looking forward to the new Vickery Meadow Local Market and our partnership with the Vickery Meadow Improvement District as well as Half Price Books,” says Sarah Perry, Director of White Rock Local Market and affiliates. “Farmer’s markets inherently nurture a community through social interactions while providing small businesses the opportunity to grow – which is in line with the mission of the VMID.”
The Vickery Meadow Improvement District is a partnership of property owners working together to improve the neighborhood. Bordered by Northwest Highway, Skillman, I-75 and Royal, the community has a dense urban residential population, making it a perfect spot for the new market.
White Rock Local Market has been providing goods from artisans, farmers and ranchers from 150 miles around Dallas. It provides support to small farmers and hosts a community garden as well as workshops and field trips for kids and adults.
