White Rock Local Market

Posted by youngsierrans on August 4, 2009

wrlmNew this summer to the East Dallas area is the White Rock Local Market.  Based on my initial review of their operations, what appears to make this market unique is the set of “local” requirements asked of each vendor.  Vendors must originate within a 150-mile radius of Dallas, offer a variety of sustainable or organically produced products and sell at least 60% of the home-sourced product directly. I estimate that there were about 40 vendors at the July market.  Special events, like live music, are also planned during market days.  What better way to start or end your Saturday morning White Rock Lake ride, walk or clean up effort?

For information about becoming a vendor, a list of market vendors or general information, please see their website.

WRLM will open in March in 2010.  Hours/Dates: 8am-1:00pm on the second & fourth Saturdays of each month at the Green Spot Market (702 N. Buckner Blvd. at Northcliff Dr. – map).
