Dallas Farmers Market

Nestled among the skyscrapers and the hustle of the city is a place where farmers become friends. In the middle of everything but away from it all, since 1941, the Dallas Farmers Market has been filled with wholesome produce and the collective fruits of our labor. Once a humble horse-and-wagon wholesale business, the market has grown with the city and turned into a hub for farm-fresh vegetables, dairy and more.

Today, in the heart of downtown, the Dallas Farmers Market exists to cultivate a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle for all of North Texas. Seasonal produce, free-range meats, fresh eggs, artisan pantry staples, and handmade arts + crafts can be found in The Shed every weekend year round. All products are grown and raised within Texas or 400 miles of Dallas, ensuring that the selection is always fresh, seasonal, and supports local agriculture. The Market + The Shops at Harvest and Taylor Lofts are home to locally-owned small businesses with shopping and eats throughout.
