WRlocalmarket782_n_optBeginning in March 2013, the good green people of East Dallas and its surrounding ‘hoods will have an opportunity to shop the White Rock Local Market every week (almost), as opposed to every other week.

White Rock Local market is adding a second Lakewood-area location this spring. The original, a twice-a-month pop-up market in front of The Green Spot on North Buckner, is wildly popular with Lake Highlands’ and East Dallas’ health- and environmentally conscious shopper, so it’s no surprise co-founder, Old Lake Highlands resident Sarah Perry set her sights on more.

“In the four years since we began, our customer base has significantly grown and we have increased the number of vendors, so partnering with another location became a realistic goal,” Perry says.

This year, she also plans to start the White Rock Local Garden. Stay tuned for more on that.

The second WRLM will open first and third Saturdays of the month at Lakeside Baptist Church on Garland Road beginning March 9. The Buckner market is second and fourth Saturdays.
