Dallas Farmers Market

Do they still do samples? I read a few years ago that the city was going to stop the practice for health reasons, but I just moved back to Dallas.

  1. Last time I was there (October), the vendors were still passing out samples of fresh cut fruit.

    1. Last time I went (about 6 months ago..I now live in Austin) samples were everywhere.n Go and enjoy!

      1. yep I went last weekend and bought some oranges because the samples were good. I wonder how you could force the market to stop while allowing Walmart and it's ilk to continue.

        1. Samples yes and the whole place is getting so much better. More farmers and local stuff.

          1. Does anyone know if organic produce is available there yet?

              I don't remember seeing any but I wasn't asking questions either. I'm probably gonna go back this weekend, I hope they have more local stuff. Seemed like a lot of imports last time.
