Summer is almost here, and that means it’s a great time to explore the Dallas community and get to know your local farmers. Farmers markets are a great place to enjoy a weekend afternoon with your friends and family, and by shopping here you can eat healthy, locally grown food while directly supporting the people who produce it.
Dallas has a wide variety of farmers markets, but here are a few that are located less than a 20 minute drive from our apartments at Radius at Turtle Creek.
Dallas Farmers Market
Started in 1941, The Dallas Farmers Market offers two different shopping experiences. The first is a permanent market open seven days a week. Inside there are artisanal food vendors and restaurants so you can enjoy a bite to eat. The second is an open-air market open weekends and some weekdays, depending on the season. At the weekend farmers market you can find a large variety of locally grown produce, pasture-raised meats, specialty food products, crafts, and much more.
