June at the CFM

It’s June and shoppers are seeing peak-season fruits and veggies roll into the Coppell Farmers Market (CFM). Some seasonal gems include: peaches, blueberries and field tomatoes. It’s the perfect time of year for our farmers market to plug in, share the harvest with community programs, and offer a little extra fun on market Saturdays.

Upcoming CFM Partner Programs:
