Plenty to offer from local family farms and craftsmen. Lots of variety: Good eats and treats (crepes, fresh baked pizza from a brick oven, and other offerings); fresh produce, local wines, artisan cheeses, fresh dairy, local meats, eggs, objects d'art, and local musicians. A real family friendly, carnival atmosphere. I bet you won't go home empty handed. My wife and... More

We were there on a perfect fall day and loved everything about our experience. We bought some pecans and drank some coffee.

After shopping at Magnolia Market, I went to the farmers' market. I sampled a crepe, which was delicious. There are booths with locally-grown produce. Also, there are many food booths that were quite busy. It is a nice place to take children and dogs for a pleasant few hours. I would do this again.

Living in Dallas and having a large permanent Farmer's Market, I was not sure what to expect when we stopped in this "pop up" Saturday market. MAN, I could have not been more pleasantly surprised when we arrive and I heard the sounds of a baby grand piano playing in the park. My point of destination was the "Milo Biscuit... More

This farmers market is a nice place to be. Its atmosphere is very family friendly; the main customers are young couples, university students, and families with children and pets. The name "Farmer's Market" is a bit of a misnomer. In reality, there are just a few vegetable stands sprinkled among the small businesses who specialize in soap, tacos, juices, breads,... More

The farmer's market is wonderful! There is a large variety of items to choose from and great food! The market is under a bunch of trees so it's not bad for a hot day!

I visited the market on a Saturday with my family and we really enjoyed the selection of fresh and organic items. Best of all it's mostly in the shade under the trees! Even on a busy Saturday it didn't feel over crowded. There was plenty of space to walk around without getting run over. There are plenty of booths with... More

We enjoyed going to the market when we could. All the prepared foods looked and smelled wonderful. All the produce and meats were always very fresh and good looking too. Sometimes things can be a bit pricey.

First stop after getting off the plane was here. Probably the best watermelon I've ever eaten. The vendors were plenty. There was fruit, vegetables, sweets for me and my puppy. I bought several headbands for working out. Bring your dog. After a long flight I found this very relaxing and enjoyable.

Thank Diana M
