The 9 Best Farmers Markets in the Dallas-Fort Worth Suburbs

Oct 31, 2022

Get a taste of the local food and social scene.

Farmers markets are only filled with farm-fresh produce, homemade pastries, and local eats — and they’re a great place to connect with the community. As you stroll through these markets, you might have the chance to chat with (potential) future neighbors about their take on the town, and get a peek of what life could be like post-move.

Dallas Strategist Jana Stern shared her favorite farmers markets in the Dallas-Fort-Worth area to help make your next town tour a bit tastier.

#1. Good Local Markets (East Dallas and Lakewood)

  • White Rock Farmers Market | White Rock United Methodist Church 1450 Old Gate Lane | March 26 – December 17, 2022 | Saturdays 8am – 12pm
  • Lakewood Village Farmers Market | 6434 E Mockingbird Rd at Abrams | February – July | Sundays 9am – 1pm

Good Local Markets opened ​​their first location, White Rock Local Market, in 2009. Since then this nonprofit has launched a second market in Lakewood. Both locations offer produce and grass-fed beef from local farms along with a selection of seasonal pies and handmade jewelry. Keep an eye out for vendors like Rowlett Coffee, Texas Pie Kings and Jolly Acres Farms (which sells goat milk caramels). And good news for pup parents – dogs are welcome at both markets as long as they are on a short leash.  

Check the website for updated hours before heading to either of these markets. The Lakewood Village market typically only runs from February – July.

#2. Four Seasons Markets (Carrollton, Flower Mound, Irving and Richardson)

  • Carrollton Artisans Market | 2722 N. Josey ln | Sundays 10am – 2pm
  • Flower Mound Farmers Market | 1500 Cross Timbers Rd | Sundays 10am – 2pm
  • Las Colinas Street Market (Irving) | 7701 N MacArthur Blvd | Saturdays 10am – 2pm
  • Richardson Farmers Market | 101 S Coit R | Saturdays 9am – 1pm

As the name suggests, these weekly markets are held year-round. If you plan to explore Carrollton, Flower Mound, Irving or Richardson, stop by one of these European-style markets during your visit. You’ll find over 35 vendors at each market selling everything from eggs and pesticide-free produce to candles, cheesecake and tamales. 

These markets can be a great starting point for a town tour. After visiting the Flower Mound Market, spend some time exploring the historic Parker Square. You could even pop into the beloved Edison Coffee Co. if you need to refuel. 

And Cottonwood Park is a nice option if you’re looking for a spot to relax after checking out the Richardsons Farmers Market. From the Las Colinas Street Market, you could easily get to Sam Houston Trail Park for a relaxed walk or bike ride. Once you finish shopping at Carrollton’s market, make your way to the town’s Greenbelt Park which offers a multi-use trail and a disc golf course.

#3. Frisco Fresh Market

  • 9215 John W. Elliott Drive | Saturdays 8am – 4pm and Sundays 10am – 4pm

Dog parents love this pet-friendly market in the heart of Frisco and you’ll even find vendors selling specialty treats. But dogs aren’t the only ones who get to enjoy a fun farmers market snack. Look for The Pound Cake Experts or B’s Sweet Treats to pick up your own sweet treat.

As you explore the outdoor market you’ll also see tons of vendors selling farm-fresh produce, premium grass-fed beef, homemade candles and more. This market hosts some amazing events and you might get to enjoy live music or chef demos during your visit.

#4. McKinney Farmer Market at Chestnut Square

  • 315 S. Chestnut St | Saturdays April – December 8am – 12pm and January – March 9am-12pm

McKinney locals make the farmers market a staple of their weekend plans. This award-winning market is the perfect place to go for a relaxed stroll (we recommend getting a specialty drink from Coffee and Crumbs to take with you). But fair warning – with so many amazing vendors selling “homegrown, harvested and handmade” items, it’s almost impossible to just window shop here. 

There’s so much going on at the market and, if you have little ones, they’ll love the face painting, live music, lawn games and pony rides. Since the market is located in the historic Chestnut Square you could even take a trolly tour to learn more about the town. 

#5. Farmers Market of Grapevine

  • 520 South Main St #203 | Mondays – Saturdays 8am – 8pm and Sundays 9am – 6pm

If you settle in Grapevine you’ll have access to farm-fresh produce every day of the week. Unlike other farmers markets, the Grapevine market is located in a permanent storefront. But that doesn’t mean you won’t get the traditional farmers market experience. You’ll still be able to pick up baked goods, produce, eggs and honey straight from local producers. This is also a great place to find flowers and potted plants if you are still working on landscaping your new place.

#6. Coppell Farmers Market

  • 768 W Main St | Saturdays 8am – 12pm

Local milk, seasonal produce and housemade BBQ sauce await at the Coppell Farmers Market. Don’t miss the Shasta trailer-turned espresso bar if you want to sip some coffee while strolling through the market. As a fundraiser for market operations and SNAP, they occasionally host a Farm to Table dinner with delicious ingredients straight from the market. 

While the market is open year-round, check the website for the most up-to-date hours as they only run twice a month during the winter. For a bite to eat near the market, check out Twisted Root, Local Diner in Old Town Coppell.

#7. Denton Community Market

  • 317 W. Mulberry St | April – November | Saturdays 9am – 1pm

At Denton’s “producers-only” local farmers, growers and artisans all come together to sell their goods. And with the food trucks, live music and crafts this market is fun for all ages. Make a day of it and explore Denton Square after the market. Here you’ll find the three-story Recycled Books, Records & CDs, Beth Marie’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream and the ever-popular LSA Burger Co.

#8. Keller Farmers Market

  • 400 Bear Creek Parkway | May – November 19, 2022 | Saturdays 8am – 12pm

If you want to shop local it doesn’t get easier than a visit to the Keller Farmers Market – everything sold here was produced within 150 miles. The line-up changes but you can expect an assortment of seasonal Texas produce, fresh baked goods and pet treats. Chef demos, jugglers and live music are often part of the market’s event calendar.

Since the market is located in Bear Creek Park, why not grab some supplies and enjoy an afternoon picnic? This great spot also features multiple playgrounds, bike trails and sports fields. 

#9. Viva City (Fort Worth)

  • 2825 8th Avenue | Thursdays – Saturdays 9am – 5pm

Previously known as Elizabeth Anna, Viva City is a farm and garden center in Fort Worth. In addition to their walk-in market held on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, locals can sign up for weekly produce packs. This CSA-style box is filled with a rotating selection of seasonal, organic fruits and vegetables.

Viva City also hosts events – like gardening and painting classes – so keep an on the events calendar to see what’s coming up next.
