We made our trip to the market after reading an advertisement in an Addison travel mag. We had a lot of fun. They have an indoor market with food shops and gift shops. The outdoor markets were loaded with vendors giving out samples and information about their products. You could buy anything from a plants to organic beef & eggs. Parking was difficult and it was hot, but it was the best morning activity we'd had in a long time

We decided to go to the Dallas Farmers Market on a weekday even though we realized the local farmers would not be there. The local crafts that were available and the fall pumpkins, gourds, and flowers and such were beautiful, and many quite reasonably priced. The enclosed shed that held the eateries had few open stalls. I can imagine that if one went on the weekends when the local farmers were present, it would be a wonderful sidestop.

Went to the Dallas Farmer's Market to purchase some fresh veggies for my daughter. Wow! We had not eaten breakfast before we went, and did not by the time we left. All of the farmer's gave you samples of the freshest produce ever. We are from the northeast, so there were some fruits that we had never even had. The merchandise was fresh and very inexpensive. The farmers were knowledgable about their items, especially the gentleman who was selling meats from his farm.. excellent! (He's only there on Fri, Sat, Sun) Certainly a stop for now on whenever I go to Dallas.

This is a large, downtown, very good, unpretentious, farmers market. There is available, free parking, both directly in front of vendors and outside of the arcade-like buildings. A very large number of regional farmers present long rows of beautifully displayed fruits, vegetables, meats, and cheeses. It is definitely worth a visit and we plan to return frequently, drawn by the farm-fresh produce.

If you're like me, a trip to a local farmers' market when traveling can really give you a flavor of the city and what is important to the locals. While this market does not compare to the Ferry Marketplace in San Francisco, the market offers more than you might think.

Fresh flowers and plants? Check - there are many purveyors to find. Sheds 1 & 3 are open-air (covered) areas with both "local" and wholesale offerings. We Texans like our meat and poultry, so "hidden" gems are the various meat and fresh egg purveyors throughout. Heritage pork, grass-fed beef, and pastured chicken are all on the menu (and very tasty!). Shed 2 is for those either wilting from the heat or looking for other types of goods and services. Don't miss the Honey Bee Guild selling their local (from many downtown Dallas hotel rooftops and elsewhere) honey, the Spice Market, Ain't No Mo' Butter Cakes, fudge, etc.

Also, come early to Shed 2 and line up for some of the best bbq in the city at Pecan Lodge BBQ (or go around the corner for sausages and Chicago beef). Mexican food craving? La Popular offers tamales and other yummy Tex-Mex and Mexican staples.

If you're in town at the right times/nights, the Market offers cooking classes on some weekdays and quarterly cooking class series in conjunction with Friends of the Dallas Farmers Market and AIWF where you get a 3-course lunch for $25! Trust me, when one of THE best chefs in town cooks you a meal for $25 (and a visit to his/her restaurant would set you back $100 or more) it's an insane bargain. Supporting the market means supporting fresh, local food and educational programs for the city's youth and adults alike.
