Avenue of Arts and Crafts Kicks off Winter Market season
Kicking off our Winter Market season is an expanded market to include the Avenue of Arts and Crafts. With over twenty-five artisans in addition to usual vendor favorites, it will be easy to buy local this year! Shopping for hostess gifts, fresh holiday fixings, and unique presents for family and friends is simplified at the Coppell Farmers Market on Saturday. Each of these local artisans runs their own small business, so buying from them keeps money in the community.
Expect to find fiber art, hand-made jewelry, woodworking including cutting boards, stone art, additional artisan food products, and so much more! This year, you can even take home a fragrant noble fir holiday wreath to support the American Cancer Society.
The market’s regular artisan food vendors also make and package many items for the holiday season. Don’t miss seasonal offerings from our bakers such as soft salted caramels, pecan brittle, peppermint bark, holiday cookie flavors, macarons, and specialty breads and pies. Stand-bys include flavored olive oils or vinegar, handmade soaps, candles or room sprays, goat milk caramel, soup or dip or dessert mixes, Italian red sauce in decorative jars along with fresh pasta, spice mixes and flavored nuts, grain mixes, locally roasted coffee beans, jerky, honey, or just use your imagination!
Winter Markets will continue with twice monthly markets through March 2016. Farmers who sell at the Coppell FM plant winter season crops and use greenhouses so they have produce to offer year ‘round. Through the years, customers have shown that they appreciate buying local food all year long, so the farmers now plant crops accordingly. Most regular season CFM vendors continue through the winter, with additional artisan food and craft vendors added for variety.
The Winter Market schedule is December 5 & 19, 2015; January 9 & 23, 2016; February 13 & 27; March 12 & 26. Hours are 8:00am to noon, rain or shine, but not ice. Check Facebook if in question.
Lone Star Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) and bank ATM cards can be used to purchase wooden market tokens (market cash) at the CFM info booth in the center of the pavilion.
