What are your hours?
Once the 2017 season begins on April 29, the Market is open every Saturday through September 9, and then 3 more days (October 21, November 18, and December 16) before closing. Hours are from 8 a.m. to noon, rain or shine.

 

Do you have organically grown food?
The market’s focus is on local food. Food vendors are required to sell at least 60% of their own homegrown products. Distributors of products from another business or supplier may not be vendors. Products must come from within 150 miles of Dallas County.

The producers’ growing practices vary. Some vendors do have farming practices that are chemical-free and pesticide-free, commonly known as naturally grown or possibly USDA certified organic. We encourage you to talk with each vendor to learn about their farming practices.

 

What if it rains?
We will be open unless it is threatening weather. Some vendors may not come out in the rain, but the market will be open.

Can I use credit cards for purchases?
