Dallas Farmers Market Fun

If you follow me on IG or FB you know that I spend almost every Saturday and Sunday morning down at the DFM. Love the place. LOVE. THE. PLACE. The people, the food, the goods…it is all there. Here are just some of my faves.

Palmieri’s CafeIMG_8015Palmieri’s opened in March 2016. Check out my post about the opening here. The owner, Corrado Palmieri, is a kind and likeable man who is passionate about making pastries and coffee from his home. My “usual” is the mocaccino – think chocolate, espresso and a touch of foam. I also order a vanilla cornetto to take home. Oh so yummy! Palmieri’s also offers sandwiches and gelato.

El Mero Mero

This coffee has a hint of cinnamon hidden in it. I like to order a chorizo and egg on a flour tortilla and a bean and cheese on a corn tortilla. Good groceries.

Dallas Antique Company

Now to walk off all those calories. Over at Dallas Antique Company you will meet two of the sweetest folks around, Amy and John. Dallas Antique Company is more than antiques. They have so many wonderful goodies: jewelry, purses, rugs, candles, card, dish towels and just about anything to make you happy. They have just expanded their space. I can’t wait to see what I can find next.

Energy Gardens

Time for some fresh air and vitamin D. I head out to the open-air area of the market called The Shed. First stop is to my favorite plant guy. None other than #mrterrarium, Anthony at Energy Gardens. His terrariums are original, beautiful and easy to take care of. He carefully creates these beauties in all shapes and sizes. He even has terrariums you can wear around your neck! Anthony does custom plant designs in your container.

The DFM also hosts many special events:
Farm Shed Dinners – monthly dinners featuring local chefs and local ingredients.
First Fridays at DFM – enjoy the market for extended hours from 6-9 PM.
Walkabout with a Chef – accompany a local chef as he shops for specialty items and then creates a dish using the items.
Boho Market Popup – periodic market featuring some of the brightest and most-talented local artisans from Boho Market.

Honorable Mentions:
Scardello Artisan Cheese – cheese, cheese and more cheese…great cheese.
Nammi – the BBQ pork Bahn Mi is perfection and it is even better washed down with basil mint lemonade.
Stocks & Bondy – homemade broths and soups to soothe the soul.
Taqueria La Ventana – creamy, yummy elotes and jamaica (hibiscus) tea.
