Farm to Market Report: Weekend of March 21

farmersMarket_02_charIt’s about that time again for the weekly Farm to Market reports. Dallas-area markets are opening for spring, and we couldn’t be more excited. While not every farmers market is open yet, there are plenty to choose from to get your weekly dosage of fruits, vegetables, and local goods.

Also, you might want to mark your calendar. A new farmers market, Little D Farmers Market, is making its way to Dallas on Sunday, April 6 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It will be located in the parking lot of Four Corners Brewery, 423 N. Singleton Boulevard. It will be open the  first, second, and third Sundays of the month. Little D Farmers Market was created with the hope of motivating neighborhoods west of the Trinity River to buy local, healthy food.

Coppell Farmers Market: Make your way to the Coppell Farmers Market for the last weekend to stock up on goods from winter market vendors. These products include Chef Milton’s chili-honey roasted nuts and flavored Atlantic sea salts, Ipanema Brazilian cheese bread, EMA Baking Co.’s biscotti and lavosh bread, Wholesome Habit’s kale chips, and Gold Rush mustard. Expect lots of greens this weekend at the market along with pastured, grass-raised and finished beef and lamb, pastured pork, free-range chicken and eggs, goat and cow artisan cheeses, and north Texas pecans. There will also be plenty of artisan bakeries this weekend.
