Farm to Market Report: Weekend of December 8-9

It’s officially December! That means it’s more important than ever to get to those markets. Why? Imagine this: you’ve already delighted guests with your carefully selected crooner tunes, decorated immaculately, and donned your favorite tacky sweater. Holiday treats on the table better live up to the standard you’ve so clearly built. Let’s get cookin’.

Celebration Farmers Market: Just one more week until the Christmas Market on December 15. This special edition will feature everything from gluten-free dessert bars to rejuvenating teas.

4515 W. Lovers Ln.
Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Coppell Farmers Market: Pick up tons of stocking stuffers and table extras this Saturday at the Christmas Market. Nosh on pizzas by the Cavalli Pizza truck and listen to tunes by The Horny Toad Rangers while you browse Wackym’s Kitchen holiday cookie tins, Good Spices seasoning packets, Apetito gift baskets, and flavored oatmeal from Grapevine Grains. Maybe you know someone who’d like lip balm by Round Rock Honey or Christmas coffee by Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters.

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

Grapevine Farmers Market: The market is closed for the winter, but its full line of 100+ jarred goods, nuts, and candies are available at Texas Belles & Beaus on Main Street.

325 S. Main Street
Thursday – Saturday, 8:00 am – 4:00 p.m.

McKinney Farmers Market at Chestnut Square: Winter schedule means the market is open on the third Saturday of each month. Look for it on December 15 for those last-minute holiday ingredients.

315 S. Chestnut St.
Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Grand Prairie Farmers Market: Only two weeks left before this market closes for the winter! This weekend’s Holiday Market features handmade gifts, fruits and veggies, and “Feliz Navidad activities.” Check out hours here.

120 W. Main St.
Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

White Rock Local Market: This weekend, the WRLM will be twice as big for their annual holiday market. Melissa Wright from The Lab at Lakewood is emceeing the entire shebang, and her lab kiddos will be doing cool science experiments whenever the band takes a break. (Maybe they’ll make some slime? Let’s hope so.) The students from Paul Quinn College’s football field-turned-farm will also be selling fresh veggies at their table, so be sure to drop by and say hello.

702 N. Buckner Blvd
Saturday, 9 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

 

*Closed for the season: Fairview, Frisco, McKinney at Adriatica, St. Michael’s, and Rockwall Farmers Markets.
