Dallas Farmers Market

We have been trying to keep busy and find things to do in the area. I had read about the Dallas Farmers Market so we decided to make a fun outing on Saturday.  We started by visiting a park that both girls love in the neighborhood we will be living in. Then we made the drive to Dallas and stopped by Lakeshore for their weekly craft. Both of the girls made sun visors while I looked for some educational games/supplies for Grace. 

Finally, we made it to the Farmer's Market. I had read to go early for better selection or later in the day for better deals. Since we needed to make it our last stop (it is too hot to leave fruits in the car!) we went in the afternoon.

There are several different sheds and our first stop was Shed 2. There were several vendors and and a few crafters set up. 

Grace wanted her picture with the tomato!

We tried some gelato and then headed to the two sheds that sold the produce (which I don't remember the #'s now). There is also a shed where vendors sell flowers and plants and another where they sell produce in bulk. 

We ended up getting some blueberries, peaches, and a cantaloupe.  Some of the prices seemed a little cheaper than some of the grocery stores. And some vendors were selling their items for less than others. We walked around and then went back to where we found the best deals. The cantaloupe was $1 because it had to be sold that day.

Looks like fun! Our farmer's market was huge on Saturday. They had a tomotao festival. I'm not really sure tomoatoes are worth a celebration, but it seemed good for the farmer's market.
