"The flavors of these fresh vegetables just explode in your mouth! It’s the best time of year!"

"We love meeting and supporting our small farmers and local food artisans who care what they put in the food they make."
"The vegetables and fruit are all fresh. Our farmers need all the help that they can get to continue farming. I don’t mind spending a few cents more to keep our farmers producing."

"It is so close and I do not have to drive to Dallas and fight the traffic. They have some really great vegetables and fruits plus flowers and some awesome honey."
- Patricia S., Grand Prairie Farmers Market review on www.localharvest.org
"We have been coming to the Grand Prairie Market ever since it opened. We never miss a Saturday unless we have to go on a trip. We would not want it to change. We love that we know where the fruit, veggies and honey come from. Also it’s great to know that the bakery goods are made with healthy ingredients. Because the vendors are from our local area, we know we can trust them when they tell us they aren’t putting toxic products on what we are eating. This is very important to us. That is why we keep coming back. If this toxic free product wasn’t available then I would just buy at the grocery store... We also love the friendships we have developed with all the vendors. Because they are our neighbors even if they are 75 miles away. We love our Farmers Market and enjoy the special events throughout the year!"
- Diana and Ronnie Glover
