New Farmers’ Market in Collin County is a First
May 06, 2013 08:59PM
The Collin County Farmers Market at Fairview Farms, in Plano, is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at 3314 North Central Expressway. Founded by Kari Gates, of Spring Creek Organic Farm, and former Frisco market manager Scott Merner, the Collin County Farmers Market mission is to provide the community with local farm products while helping to support the farmers in a family-friendly atmosphere. More than 30 vendors offer local meats, eggs, produce and artisan products. There is also a bounce house, pony rides and a bungee jump.
A community garden maintained by local Scout troops and volunteers is planned, and all produce harvested will be donated to local food banks.
