White Rock Local Market is kicking off the 2015 season on March 14 with a brand new name: Good Local Markets, which includes only local growers and makers at three market locations.
“Good Local Markets will continue the mission started by White Rock Local Market, creating economic opportunities for local growers and makers, while bringing good food to Dallas residents,” says director Sarah Perry. “Good Local Markets will be the umbrella organization for all programming – Good Kids classes, volunteer days, workshops and annual cooking contests including our popular chili cook-off slated for April 19.”
White Rock Market is held on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. at the original Green Spot location, at 702 Buckner Boulevard.
Vickery Meadow Market is held every Sunday beginning March 15 from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. at 5803 E. Northwest Highway in the NW corner of the Half Price Books flagship store parking lot.
And the first and third Saturdays of the month, Lakeside Markets are located at Lakeside Baptist Church, at 9150 Garland Road, beginning March 21.
