2 farmers markets will open in East Dallas for spring 2021 season
It’s supposed to be below freezing in Dallas-Fort Worth this week, but don’t let that stop you from celebrating the return of Good local markets, the farmers market organization that has two locations in East Dallas every weekend.
According to a press release, the market will be located at the Lakewood Village Farmers Market at 6434 E. Mockingbird Ln. on February 14th and then every Sunday until August 15th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
If you’re looking for a fun, unusual Valentine’s Day activity, the problem is solved.
Good Local Markets exclusively presents local products, meat and eggs, bread and pastries, honey, cucumbers, jams and specialties, as well as local artisans with handcrafted crafts.
Lakewood Village providers include:
Fruth Farms Southwest
Chandler family farm
Highway 19 Farm
Along came tamale
Rowlett coffee roaster
Lost Ruby Ranch
John C Pottery
Folk tree farm
A few others
The Lakewood Village Farmers Market has a cousin: the White Rock Local Market at 9150 Garland Rd., Which runs on March 13th and runs every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. through December 18.
Casey Cutler, Executive Director of Good Local Markets, thanks the COVID-19 forces for classifying the fresh food supply and the farmers as “essential”.
“We’ll continue to take all safety precautions, including 10 feet between cabins, ample space for socially distant customers, plumbing stations, no-touch shopping and masks,” says Cutler.
All good local suppliers are certified local suppliers, not resellers or distributors. Good local markets require vendors to be within 150 miles of Dallas and grow or manufacture their own products. Good local staff even visit every farm and ranch to make sure they are grown locally and raised ethically.
