Live Like A Local: The Best of the Dallas Farmers Market

By Downtown Dallas, Inc.

The Dallas Farmers Market is the best spot in the city to visit if you’re looking for locally-grown produce, artisanal foods, and expertly made crafts. While you’re at it, be sure to visit The Shed, an open-air pavilion where you can shop from regional vendors who grow, raise, make, and produce food! We invite you to Live Like a Local and explore all the Dallas Farmers Market has to offer.
