   Some Newer faces have started gracing our lot such as Rene's Cupcakes and Cookies. Rene makes some very tasty Red Velvet, cupcakes that compliment a selection of Apple, Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry ond other flavors, also available in a vegan style as well.

Smith Farms free range chicken eggs. A word: "Incredible"

Gladys's Breads is here with Biscotti, with apple bread, and Freckle bread, and other varieties as her time and imagination permits!

Llamas debut at the Dallas Farmer's Market

We had a visit from our friends at the Southeast Llama Rescue this last Saturday! Tracy Snell and crew brought 4 llamas to share with patrons and vendors!

  More than a chance to see one of these lovely, gentile creatures up close this was also an opportunity to learn about one of the most versitile animals to serve humans. Their fine wool is used for clothing and textiles, as pack animals they can carry large loads, and when hitched to a cart is able to haul 3 times their own weight. Of special interest to our farmers and gardeners, llama droppings are high in nitrogen, an important ingredient in plant growth!

   The best news is if you're interested in experiencing these creatures first-hand they will be at the Market again this weekend.  Bring the family and see for yourself!


Also at the market...

   Take this opportunity to see what's available at the market and pick up some farm fresh eggs, homemade jams, jellies, pickles, preserves, muffins, cupcakes, pesto, honey, soaps and cosmetics, Salsas nuts and cheeses.

   Fall crops are in the ground and growing and we expect some fall produce in the coming weeks!
