Coppell Farmers Market Farm to Table Dinner, not only was sold out of the 100 tickets in two hours, but the chefs were clamoring for more courses (yes, we only have six, but “how about more?”) and more market farmers and producers were saying, “take what you need”, and the volunteers (over 70) were as excited to get in as the ticketed guests. It is not just a dinner; it is evidence of a joy of knowing and honoring the farmers, producers, markets, customers, chefs, and supporters. The over-reaching theme of the evening with the conversations and between-course recognitions was relationships and the family feel of the Coppell Farmers Market.
