Both the Celebration and the Rockwall farmers markets are closed for the season and Frisco’s market along with Grapevine’s and St. Michael’s will be closing in two weeks.
But there are still a number of markets open for business with plenty of fall produce available. For instance, Good Earth Organic Farms will be bringing mustard greens, okra, turnips with greens, arugula, radishes, kale, butternut squash and a wide variety of peppers-- Cubanelle , Pimento, Serrano, Jalapeno and Banana—to both the McKinney and White Rock markets this weekend.
All the markets should have a selection of pumpkins for your Halloween jack o’ lantern, other fall squash like acorn and spaghetti , along with a variety of zucchini and summer squashes. Also look for apples pears, grapes, onions, potatoes, eggplant, cucumbers, green beans, and even some late tomatoes and melons.
Coppell Market is advising customers to bring along their knives because Jack Gresham will be there with his mobile knife sharpening truck to hone your knives (and any other cutting tools) while you shop.
At the Dallas Farmers Market, this weekend’s American Institute of Wine and Food’s cooking class features Amici Signature Italian’s Bartolino Cocuzza. Doors open at 11:00 a.m.
At the Grand Prairie market, enjoy special fall activities, gourmet food trucks (including Yum Yum and Soldjah's BBQ), art booths, games, face painting, bounce houses, pumpkin toss, pumpkin bowling, pumpkin decorating, music and more at Farmers Market’s Harvest Fair. Also look for sharp cheddar, Parmesan and marinated feta cheeses along with grass fed beef from Rosey Ridge Farm at the market.
