Thursday night we were vendors at the Dallas Farmer’s Market Hoedown which is the Friends of the Farmer’s Market largest fundraiser. It is put on in partnership with the Texas Department of Agriculture Go Texan program of which we are a member. If you have never attended you should make plans to be there next year as it’s a really fun party and I think in support of a good cause. The Hoedown is always held early in November in the Food & Fiber Pavilion at Fair Park a few weeks after the State Fair closes. The tickets this year were $30.00 – $40.00 depending on whether or not you are a Friend of the Farmer’s Market. This gets you in the door to a smorgasbord of delicious food offerings from the chefs of local restaurants. It also allows you to sample a variety of local wines. There are artisans and craftsman such as myself selling their wares. There is a silent auction with what looked like some fabulous hotel packages. A live band provides great music. As I said – it’s a wonderful party! We sure had a good time.
Here’s a link to the Hoedown’s informational web page so you can make it next year.

I love the Dallas Farmer’s Market. I just moved to Houston, and the farmer’s market here is really cruddy compared to Dallas’. I bought some peaches from the one in Houston, and got home and they had a sticker from Mexico on them. That was not a good feeling! They were supposed to be home grown!
This is a great post.. Very informative… I can see that you put a lot of hard work on your every post that’s why I think I’d come here more often. Keep it up! By the way, you can also drop by my blogs. They’re about Vegetable Gardening and Composting. I’m sure you’d find my blogs helpful too.
Thanks for the positive comments. I will look forward to reading your blog as well as I enjoy gardening when I have the time. I just bought three citrus trees – samsuta, mexican lime and lemon drop. Hopefully we will be successful with them.
