Eat fresh and support local this weekend with a trip to the Las Colinas Farmers Market. Open every Saturday from 10 AM to 2 PM, it’s the perfect stop to stock up for the week on healthy and fresh food. The Las Colinas Farmers Market is located at 7701 N. MacArthur Blvd. It does close occasionally due to extreme weather conditions, so make sure to check before you go.
While you’re doing some shopping, grab lunch from a local vendor to fuel your trip. You can knock out two birds with one excursion. Plus, it’s dangerous to shop on an empty stomach. Even at a farmers market. Select from great favorites like Tamales Over Texas or Salad King, and treat yourself to something from Favorite Sister Bakery. You can even pick up some homemade treats for your pup.
Find and support local artists and hand made gifts while you’re walking about the farmers market. You’ll find art, accessories, and jewelry for sale. Not to mention beauty supplies for your beard.
The best part of any farmers market is the fresh produce. Do a little meal planning ahead of time and stock up on the best of what the Las Colinas Farmers Market has to offer. That way you don’t have to worry about wasting any of the amazing finds.
Get out this weekend, enjoy the fresh Texan air, and interact with the community. Farmers markets are a great place to meet the community and put your money where it matters. Plus, you get great food and products. Everyone wins.
