pavilion with flaps down during rain

Open Rain or Shine!

Rain or shine, the farmers market is open! If the pavilion flaps are down, then it is dry and cozy inside! Each vendor determines whether or not it is right for him/her to come, a decision usually based on how wet the fields were at picking time or if their products don’t do well in excess moisture (think soaps . . . ).

For current market weather notices, please check our Facebook page.

Here are activities to expect, or not, on October 31:

Seasonal Food

The Coppell Farmers Market is a seasonal, local market. This means a product found in June may not be available in November. While a three year old little boy looking for “boo berries” last March didn’t understand why blueberries wouldn’t be available for a little while, most customers now realize this although they may be disappointed the blueberries are gone until next May.

What some don’t understand is that cooler weather doesn’t mean all cool weather...   | Read More
