Happy Food Year!

Happy New Year from the Coppell Farmers Market!  Here’s to your year of eating wholesome, connecting with your food producers, and a healthy community lifestyle!  The Coppell Farmers Market will be open this winter the second and fourth Saturdays in January, February, and March, so plan ahead to make the farmers market one of the healthy ingredients in 2015.

2014 was a big year for the Coppell Farmers Market with the much anticipated move to the newly built pavilion on Main Street in Old Town Coppell.  With the addition of cover, restrooms, playground, and an interactive fountain, the farmers market became a family destination for good food and fun.  The middle of July customer count rose 40% over prior years.  Vendor count also increased with the space, including a rotating set of local food entrepreneurs with their specialty items and two special days with the Avenue of Arts & Crafts.  The popular CFM Farm to Table Dinner sold out in 2 hours this year, the Chef Demos were standing room only, and the Food Day for Kids encouraged families to make healthy food choices.

Looking ahead to 2015, the Coppell Farmers Market will continue to focus on the original mission and invites customers and volunteers 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.  Since the farmers market established in 2003, the farmers and producers are increasing in numbers and experience, including new farmers just out of college making locally grown food more available for all.  Many plans for 2015, including the CFM Farm to Table Dinner on June 7.  Subscribe on the CFM website for the weekly newsletters, to find out when tickets will go on sale at the farmers market and more!

Thanks for being a part of this happy food year!
