The first time I went to the Dallas Farmer's Market was in late November 2008. I had just moved to Dallas and I had high expectations because it is such a large city. I love both the Austin and Wichita Farmer's markets, which feature local farmers and artisans selling their goods seasonally on Saturday mornings (which I think is typical of most). I was disappointed because the Dallas market was different; most of the produce offered was from vendors, and it wasn't local, not even to Texas!
However, I was pleasantly surprised when I went there again on Sunday; there is now a whole local section in Shed 1; not all of the vendors are local in Shed 1, but towards the back, there are farmers selling their local produce. Hooray!! I found yummy tomatoes, peaches, basil, onions, and cantaloupe. There was still some things to be desired, like local meats and cheeses, but I think that this market has potential and the facilities are excellent.
