Farmers markets are great places to visit because they’re full of fresh products made by local vendors. Each market is a treasure trove of booths that sell everything from produce to baked goods and art. While Coppell has an excellent farmers market, there are many other markets around Coppell that you can visit, as well. Here are a few you should be sure to explore with your family, courtesy of Creme de la Creme of Coppell.
1. Coppell Farmers Market
Coppell Farmers Market is located at 768 W. Main St., which is across from Old Town Coppell. In addition to shopping booths found both inside and outside of a covered pavilion, you’ll also discover other fun activities you can enjoy, such as an interactive fountain area and a farm-themed playground. The market is open from 8 a.m. until noon every Saturday until January when they change it to only open on the second and fourth Saturday of the month, which lasts until March.
The market has an extensive selection of vendors that sell baked goods, produce, meat and eggs, and other farm products. If it’s delicious baked goods you’re after, visit Hazels Kitchen, where you’ll have a hard time choosing from a wide variety of treats such as sugar cookies, cakes, pies, and sweet breads. Hippos and Hashbrowns bakes all their products from scratch using high-quality, local ingredients.
If you want some classically prepared French pastries baked by a U.S. Army veteran, be sure to check out Joe the Baker, or you can get some fresh bread from Village Baking Co. Want some melt-in-your-mouth cookies? Then swing by Wackym’s Kitchen.
For those in need of some fresh produce, check out Highway 19 Produce and Berries, Winona Orchards, or Delanco Farm along with an array of other vendors. To complement that fresh produce, Livestock First Ranch and Narrow Way Farms are two places you can visit for high-quality meats, including beef, pork, and chicken.
There are also non-edible products you can browse. For example, The Bohemian Shepherdess sells skincare products, and Biscuit Head Backing makes dog treats your four-legged friend will love you for. If you’d like to sniff a selection of aromatic candles, be sure to visit Abundantly Aromatic. You can also check out Flo Mo Elderberry, where they sell various Elderberry products such as syrup, tea, and herbal remedies.
