Beginning this Saturday, April 1st, the Coppell Farmers Market returns to a weekly schedule: open every Saturday until Thanksgiving, and then again twice per month through next winter.
Due to the mild North Texas winter many farmers and growers are making an unseasonably early return. Find a wide variety of produce this weekend- including vine ripened strawberries- plus veggie plants for your garden! To kick off the return of weekly markets we’re teaching and entertaining shoppers with a 10:00am Chef Demonstration and 10:30am Garden Time for Kids.
More about the Chef Demo: We’re excited to host Executive Chef Ray Skradzinski of Flower Mound’s new and acclaimed restaurant, The Table. Chef Skradzinski’s takes pride in preparing modern American cuisine from scratch, using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. The restaurant’s menu plays to the passions of the Executive Chef, who grew up on the East Coast. He began working in kitchens as a teen and eventually landed a gig as Executive Sous Chef for celebrity Chef Wolfgang Puck. Skradzinski says, “The menu is a combination of my favorite things I have cooked professionally over the years yet also heavily influenced by foods from my childhood.” The chef demonstration will begin at 10:00am and will take place in the greenspace next to the market pavilion, beneath the cover of blue Coppell Farmers Market canopies.
More about Garden Time for Kids: During this short garden meet up children will have a chance to learn what’s growing the CFM Learning Garden and taste test fresh veggies from market farmers. The meet up begins at 10:30am and wraps up by 11:00am. The CFM Learning Garden is located near the splash pad and flagpole.
