Urban Acres Moves For Greater Independence
Pioneering Urban Acres, one of the first local and organic food retailers in central Dallas, has relocated its headquarters from the original farm store to a new site in a former gas station next to Mama Connie’s Diner at 1605 North Beckley, in North Oak Cliff, across from Methodist Hospital.
Urban Acres, which started its Co-op three years ago with 19 families, also maintains 10 farm stands in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where more than 1,200 members of the co-op style operation pick up produce.
Co-owner Steven Bailey says the move to a freestanding location gives the growing company space for an educational garden, a patio and its own parking lot. The store carries a selection of hard-to-find grocery items Friday through Sunday, from coconut oil to sprouted raw nuts, as well as local raw honey and low-pasteurized, non-homogenized milk.
