The Coppell Farmers Market recently made the list of MSN's 100 Best Farmers Markets in America for 2015. Please click here for that article. Every Saturday morning, this medium sized, grower only farmers market hosts a diverse mix of farmers, ranchers and artisan food vendors. Located in the Square at Old Town Coppell, vendors set up under the pavilion and in the parking lot from 8:00am - noon. With a splash pad and playground adjacent to the farmers market, young families find it convenient and fun to shop for food together.
To keep the produce local, seasonal and fresh, produce vendors at the CFM are vetted and must be located within a 150 mile radius of Coppell. Often the produce has been picked the day before the market. The farmers use various growing methods and to clarify, the Vendor section of the CFM website notes growing methods on each farmer’s description page. Look for Certified Organic, Sustainably Grown, or Conventional growing methods noted at the end of their individual descriptions.
With the support of the City of Coppell, the Coppell Farmers Market was established in 2003 by citizens who had a vision for a farmers market in Old Town Coppell. Under the umbrella of the Coppell Community Garden, a 501(c)3 organization, the market is still run by volunteers, and has grown to over 35 vendors. Well over a thousand customers come to the Coppell FM on any given Saturday to find local, healthy food, develop a relationship with those providing their food, meet up with friends and neighbors, and be a part of the local food movement.
Located at 768 W Main Street in Coppell, detailed information about vendors and products is available at on the Coppell Farmers Market website.
