Farmers Market Trip

The last few days in Dallas have been particularly rainy and dreary. In order to combat this, we’ve been taking part in things that bring sunshine to the soul. Project one: Dallas Farmers Market. This is something I’ve been wanting to do since we moved to Dallas almost a year ago, but no worries; we went twice this weekend to make up for it.

Initially, I wasn’t sure about all the tropical fruits, knowing you can’t grow pineapples in Texas. But after some looking around, we found the local farmer section. The husband and I purchased some new potatoes and green beans, along with some non-local pears and tangelos. We had a great time just walking around and felt like we’d eaten a meal when we left thanks to all the generous vendors with samples aplenty.

Now we just can’t wait to cook and eat all our new finds. I’m already excited about their list of April and May classes. What did you do this weekend? Have you ever visited the farmers market in your area?

  1. I’m gonna be that guy…

    I once watched at guy at the Dallas Farmers Market use his knife to pop some mud off his boot, then turn and slice the pineapple for a customer…

    My wife and I used to love the Farmers Market. I can remember living in an apartment with no space for a garden, and using the Farmers Market at the place we’d go to smell the flowers and produce!

    1. That’s awesome! I guess I don’t care much about mud, as long as it wasn’t some type of animal product. 🙂 Do you guys have a garden now?

  2. I always loved the Dallas Farmers Market. I went several times with my (now deceased) sister-in-law, Lou Ann. We always had a ball there! We have a small farmers market on 494 just across from 2nd Baptist.
