The Frisco Farmers Market was first launched by the Frisco Noon Lions Club in 2007, but is run today by the Rotary Club of Frisco. Providing the city with the freshest of seasonal produce, this weekly farmers market, which is held each Saturday morning, is a great opportunity for local farmers to get to know their customers, as well as for the residents of the city to understand exactly where their food comes from.
The colorful tables of produce set up by local farms are usually the highlight of the Frisco Rotary Farmers Market each week. Denton Creek Farm, which is a 35-acre farm in Ponder, grows and sells the freshest of local fruits and vegetables, bringing seasonal delights to their customers. Little John’s Plants is another stall that focuses on vegetables, including the ever-popular tomato, corn, squash, okra and green beans. For those seeking out some local meat, the K Bar K Ranch stall is the one to head to, as you will find pasture-raised beef, pork, lamb, and poultry, as well as fresh free range eggs. If you were hoping to gain some knowledge on growing your own produce, pay a visit to PurEarth Farms, as they produce organic fertilizer and compost that will help you to produce your very own selection of fresh produce.
Other Local Produce
In addition to featuring a number of local farms, the Frisco Rotary Farmers Market also boasts a wide range of other local businesses. Apetito Co. is a business that always has a popular stall, as they sell a selection of gourmet Texan products, from barbecue rubs and sauces to creative ketchup combinations. AP’s Apiaries is another stall worth stopping off at for a taste of their local honey. This bee-keeping family produces a variety of different honeys from bees that feed on a diverse array of plants, such as local wildflowers and clover. For those seeking out some freshly baked goods with a beautiful personal touch, visit the Mixed Bakery stall, who produce their cookies, cakes, and muffins from their home-based bakery under the Texas Cottage Food Law.
Fashion and Crafts
The Frisco Rotary Farmers Market is a fantastic opportunity to browse the wares of local artisans, such as the Carter Mill Soap Company. This local business creates handcrafted products for the skin and body, making use of fruit and nut oils, and nourishing natural butters, only using raw and wholesome ingredients. Gotta-Have-It Knits is another company that really stands out with their hand-knitted hats, scarves, gloves and handbags, as well as their jewelry that has been created with the use of vintage knitting needles. There are a number of other fashion companies that showcase their creations at the market, from Jojo & Lou to the Mainstream Boutique to Frisco Tees.
The Frisco Rotary Farmers Market was started with the aim to cultivate the relationship between local businesses and their customers, and it has managed to successfully do exactly that. From the local farms that gather each week to sell their freshly harvested produce, to the small craft businesses that showcase their creative skills, it is no surprise that the market is always buzzing with life every Saturday.
