Farmer's Market Adventure

 Something different on a Sunday - a jaunt to the Dallas Farmer's Market.  It's rather small, but definitely in a growth phase.

It was off season on a Sunday - not much produce. We enjoyed breakfast tacos at a new taqueira. More restaurants are coming along with other touristy shops in The Market area.  Ray and I enjoyed our walk around the area and I would come back to try out new places.

  3. Neat pictures. I like that colorful Pegasus. I enjoy going to Farmer's Markets. When I go to one here, I am always in search of fresh peaches and blueberries.

  4. Farmers markets in Leicester always involve sausages sizzling on a griddle and displays of locally made bread, wine, chutney etc. Dallas sounds so romantic and exciting. I'm such an untravelled English woman, aren't I

  5. Sounds fun. I haven't been to any farmer markets here yet. I like to people watch when I do do.

  6. I really like Farmer's Markets. I tend to end up paying double price for something a little better than what the supermarket offers. In a local park we get a French Market twice a year; great cheese, olives and bread! (That's just on the edge of Greater London, UK).

  7. When I lived in Houston I loved going to the farmer's market there! We have a good one here in Gloucester but in Houston farmers came up from the Rio Grande Valley and brought such great produce.

  9. Hi Joanne - we do have farmers' markets ... but living on the coast they are not necessarily that convenient - but there's an excellent Farm Shop with Pick Your Own about 8 miles north - which I visit. Love fresh produce ... that Dallas one I'm sure will be successful, once it's established ...

    I need to pick up some tomatoes and onions to make some sauce ... and then some apples and fruits for fruit stews ... all to freeze - Cheers Hilary

  12. No access to farmers' markets where I live. Fresh produce fix indulged nonstop only on home leaves.

    Those are absolutely gorgeous skies in your photos!
