The 3rd Annual Hatch Chile Festival will heat up the Farmers Market from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, August 24, at Market Square, 120 W. Main St., with world famous Hatch chiles from New Mexico. Hatch chiles will be for sale and visitors will have two options: they will be able to buy roasted chiles—fire roasted right on the spot—or raw chiles to take home and prepare. In addition, the event will feature cooking demonstrations, art, music, kids activities and the usual produce and goods of the farmers market.
The Grand Prairie Farmers Market sells locally grown fruits and vegetables, meats, cheeses, wines, tamales, candles, soaps and much more. The market is open every Saturday. March to December, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
