Nice farmers marketFlag review
We decided to spend a weeked in Dallas a few months ago. On our last day, I did some research online and came across information on the Dallas Farmers market, so we decided to visit the area. It wqas not the perfect season for farmers markets, but I have to admit that we were impressd with the size and selection of reasonably priced fresh fruits and vegetables. Just about every vendor was very nice and offered free samples. My wife and daughters bought some things and seemed satisfied. There is an indoor area that has a few food vendors. One of them was a very popular BBQ stand, but the line was way too long for us. Too bad, it looked very good. We settled on some Mexican food, which was OK, but nothing spectactular. Overall, good place to take the kids for an hour or two if you are in the dallas area.

I love having access to real vegetables rather than the waxy, chemically treated stuff you find at the grocery store! There are a lot of the same items sold by different stalls: tomatoes, onions, peppers, jicama etc. but it is absolutely the best place to buy fresh produce in the DFW! It's a great place to go with kids because the vendors are friendly and you get tons of free sames of all different kinds of fruits and vegetables! The indoor market is also great! There are some excellent restaurants offering all different types of foods (bbq, deli, and Mexican) and even a couple of meat and cheese vendors that offer products equally as delicious as the vegetarian fare outside! There is a spice store, a knife ...
Mangos. You like em? They got em. Mangos. Yes, folks, mangos. Mangos, mangos, mangos. We came on a weekday in the early afternoon so it wasn't crowded. At all. Maybe that's why we were getting showered with mango samples. The produce was stacked beautifully. Great prices and better taste than grocery sto...
The corn vendor's sign said "Little Cup of Heaven" and indeed is was. The corn was amazing, topped with special seasoning's, mayo, and what not. We even threw on some Burger House seasoning and some Slap Yo Mama just in case it needed more. And it was great--it always is. Cup'o'corn is a standard when me and the munchkin hit the Farmer's Market. We love this place--or at least I do. I've loved the Farmer's Market since I was a little girl. I was sad when they started making it over. I thought they'd over do it and then it would become a homogenized ghost town, but not so. The market is vibrant and full of snacks. The air conditioned vendor's shed is great. I spent a lot more than I planned but came home with...
I didn't know how great going to the farmers market would be in the winter. I grabbed the boyfriend, my recycled bags, pulled out some cash, and headed downtown. Parking was free and easy. Plenty of space in front of the main pavilion. Everyone offers samples. However, I do not partake in any samples being offered because of something I saw a few years ago. I know a guy that used to hang out by the peaches area. He would sometimes cut pieces of his peach for people to try. I also know that this guy used his pocket knife for a lot of other things like for instance, cleaning his toenails. So now I have to think about that every time a vendor is slicing fruit with their pocket knife. I got a lot of great produc...
Having a Farmer's Market as nice as this would make any sensible person pick up and move to Dallas area just for what they have to offer! I visited the Farmer's Market today and this is by far not the first time I've visited, but, the first time I'd given reviews...I love this place; it's awesome! Where else can you go and take twenty dollars in cash and have a whole kitchen table covered and overflowing with scrumptous, absolutely fresh produce? When it comes to my produce, I'm very picky and I purchase fresh produce weekly in quantities to fullfill my juicing regimen. The best thing is, the area is clean, vendors are friendly, professional and not pushy...you know what I mean? I advise you to bring along a...
I grew up in Duncanville and moved to far northeast Texas at about the age of 10, so my memories of this market are a bit fuzzy, but all are warm. When I was a kid in Duncanville, my mom was in a few social groups and one of those groups was a produce co-op. Once a month or so, my mom would take me and sometimes a lucky friend to the Dallas Farmer's Market, buy a shit ton of produce, bag it all up, lay it out on the curb, and we'd all sit out on the front lawn and wait for the other mamas to come by and pick up their groceries. There was never any need to buy produce from Maynards or Safeway. Nobody wanted to buy produce from there because they were all probably buying fruits and veggies and flowers from ...
