Worried about using a whole basket of a certain vegetable or fruit? Consider freezing part of it. Maybe cut up or shred it, freeze, and you’ll have “fast food” sometime in the future.
Summer produce is still strong with plenty of eggplant, shelled peas and beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, okra, melons, peppers, squash (summer and winter), spinach, onions, garlic, fresh herbs, wheat grass, salad greens, arugula, and more. Apples and pears are showing up now, along with the end of the peaches.
Always find pastured beef, pork, and chicken raised on a natural diet, free range eggs and Gulf seafood.
Look for prepared foods made in small batches, breads, butter, cow and goat milk cheese, pasta, snacks, pies, cookies, scones, mixes, spices, honey, lemonade, real fruit crafted popsicles, whole grains, tamales, coffee, doggie biscuits, Texas olive oil, vinegar, chocolate truffles, doggie biscuits, soaps, candles and lotions round out the offerings.
Please note that we are a local, seasonal farmers market, meaning that our farmers bring only what is ripening in their fields each week. Some produce is short lived due to a short growing season. Eating with the seasons takes education, awareness and patience! For a chart of what’s in season now, click here. Our farmers use various growing methods. Some produce is organic (not certified), some is sustainable, and some is grown conventionally. Just ask the farmers.
The Coppell Farmers Market is open every Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon at 768 W. Main Street 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.
