On Saturday, August 12th the Coppell Farmers Market celebrated National Farmers Market week. A group of panelists comprised of food producers and farm advocates discussed the significance and challenges of farmers markets. The panel discussion moderated by Amanda Vanhoozier, author of Just Picked TX and long-time food/farming community builder based in Coppell.
“As we were just getting into the introductions, there was this positive wave of energy that began to enrich the conversation we were about to have in a public setting.
…as each [panelist] offered their perspective, there was a collective realization that afarmers market is so much greater than the sum of the parts.”
