Winter Market season is beginning at the Coppell Farmers Market. Kicking off on December 5 with an expanded market to include the Avenue of Arts and Crafts, find artisan vendors who craft a wide variety of unique offerings to make the holidays shine! Look for fiber art, hand-made jewelry, woodworking, stone art, more artisan food products, and so much more! The market’s regular artisan food vendors also make and package many items for the holiday season. Each of these local artisans runs their own small business, so buying from them keeps money in the community.
Winter Markets will continue with twice monthly markets through March 2016. Farmers who sell at the CoppellFM plant winter season crops and use greenhouses so they have produce to offer year ‘round. Through the years, customers have shown that they appreciate buying local food all year long, so the farmers now plant crops accordingly. Most regular season CFM vendors continue through the winter, with additional artisan food and craft vendors added for variety.
Besides greenhouse tomatoes, green beans and more, winter produce is coming on strong, like broccoli, cabbage, greens, root vegetables, and winter squashes. Meats continue, as do goat milk cheeses, drinkable goat milk yogurt, cows’ milk artisan cheese, butter, honey and a host of other artisan foods.
The Winter Market schedule is December 5 & 19, 2015; January 9 & 23, 2016; February 13 & 27; March 12 & 26. Hours are 8:00am to noon, rain or shine, but not ice. Check Facebook if in question. The Coppell Farmers Market is located at 768 W. Main Street, under the pavilion in Old Town Coppell. Lone Star Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) and bank ATM cards can be used to purchase wooden market tokens (market cash) at the CFM info booth in the center of the pavilion.
