Dallas’ favorite community farmers market - Good Local Markets kicks-off the 2016 season on Saturday, March 12 at Lakeside Baptist Church.  Good Local Markets operates two markets in Dallas, with the Vickery Meadow Market beginning Sunday, April 3. 

“We will miss our friends at The Green Spot,” says Sarah Perry, director of Good Local Markets.  “But we are very excited to be at Lakeside Baptist Church every Saturday with more room for vendors and shoppers.” 

The Vickery Meadow Market will open April 3rd at Half Price Books and continue every Sunday in a new location.  This year the market is on the east side of the store, just outside the Black Forest Cafe.

“We are excited about the additional visibility we gain at this new location at Half Price Books.  It also allows for easier access via Shady Brook Drive or from the front entrance,” adds Sarah.
