It’s getting a little scarce out there, guys. As the markets are wrapping up, think back to your favorite buys of 2013. What was the biggest surprise? Hopefully you’ve made some pleasant discoveries while supporting local produce. Check out what’s coming up.
Coppell Farmers Market:
793 S. Coppell Rd.
Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Summer produce is still available over here, but look through the selection of mung bean sprouts, okra, and oyster mushrooms. You can also get some wild caught Alaska salmon and plenty of pies, from sweet potato, to pumpkin, to cranberry custard. Cinnamon apple granola has also returned for the fall. You’ll find breakfast quiches, stuffed olives, and kale chips at the market as well.
White Rock Farmers Market:

Unique to the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of November are vendors such as Don Riemer, selling wood chopping boards, Gallery Three 3 Three with their paintings and other media, Averylynn Jewelry’s handmade items, and the Letter Tree, who repurposes old books. That’s not to mention all of the vegetables, meats, and baked goods that can expected at the market.
Dallas Farmers Market:
1010 S. Pearl Expressway
Daily, 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Next week, head over to Fair Park for a good, old fashioned hoe down at the Food & Fiber building. The event will benefit both the North Texas Food Bank and the Dallas Farmers Market. It’s next Thursday – November 7th.
