Dallas Farmers Market offers more locally grown and sourced products

Beginning Monday, visitors to the Dallas Farmers Market will find more food that is grown and sourced locally by farmers and producers.

These major operational changes are part of a growing effort to change how people think about their food, said Director of Market Operations Amanda Vanhoozier.

In offering food that is locally grown and sourced with minimal handling and processing, customers can be confident that they are buying products from a true, sustainable source.

With the assistance of the nonprofit organization GROW North Texas, farmers and ranchers are eager to participate in the Market's improvements.

Local vendors will also sell natural meats, artisanal cheeses, pastured eggs, jarred jams and pickles, breads and pastries, as well as recently harvested produce every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Dallas Farmers Market, open daily except Wednesdays, is currently operating out of The Shed while it undergoes renovations. The Market will re-open in early fall.
