New Location for 2014 Season, Opened on March 29

As the weekly farmers market schedule resumes on Saturday, look for the Coppell Farmers Market around the corner in the public square located in Old Town Coppell at 768 W. Main Street. If you liked the old site, you’ll love the new site, just one short block away!

The Coppell Farmers Market will have a new configuration, with many vendors under the pavilion, T-ing off into a large open space for the large trucks with trailers. Extra signage and volunteers will be ready on opening day to help customers find their favorite vendors. All vendors will be returning this year so there will be plenty of familiar faces along with some additional farmers growing sustainable produce, though not all will be present on Opening Day. Parking for the market is along the one-way streets around the square, including a parking lot to the northwest of the pavilion.

Ideal for family outings, the pavilion sits adjacent to a new playground and an interactive fountain, with plenty of green space in the public square, seating areas, easy access to parking and a restroom. Old Town Coppell is a revitalized area in the southwest sector of Coppell and includes restaurants, retail and office, craftsman style homes, and the new pavilion housing the Coppell Farmers Market.

The Coppell Farmers Market, established in 2003, has become one of the best community markets in the DFW area, where people can shop for all of their meals from this fresh and local source. Both customers and the farmers/producers have shaped the market to what it is today, guided by a community-based organization, the Coppell Farmers Market Committee. The committee has certainly been true to their mission to form a relationship with local growers/producers in order to provide fresh, seasonal produce and agricultural products for our community while fostering a sense of place in Old Town Coppell.

The Coppell Farmers Market is open every Saturday now, 8am to noon. The farmers market accepts Lone Star Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) and bank ATM cards used to purchase wooden market tokens (market cash) at the CFM Info booth and free coffee.
