Panel Discussion with producers and farm advocates moderated by Amanda Vanhoozier, author of Just Picked TX and long-time food/farming community builder based in Coppell.

“First ever panel discussion at the Coppell Farmers Market with food artisans, farmers, market managers and avid customers! What are the benefits of farmers markets (food, social, economic, environmental); what is needed to support the farmers and small business start ups; what can be improved for the local food system in North Texas?”
