Buy in Bulk at Night and Save

Jul 06, 2016 01:58PM

The Regional Wholesale Market at the Dallas Farmers’ Market is the perfect place to buy the freshest-picked farm produce in the metroplex at a wholesale, bulk price straight from the farmer. These “night markets” are so named because they take place from 8 p.m. Sundays to 7 a.m. Monday and from 8 p.m. Thursday to 7 a.m. Friday.

Since the 1940s, farmers would pick and load during the daylight hours and arrive at the market during the night to sell in bulk to each other for their farm stands, restaurants and corner stores. This tradition continues to this day and is open to the public. Produce available this summer includes tomatoes, peaches, blueberries, new potatoes, onions, squash, cucumbers, sweet corn, southern peas, cantaloupes, watermelon, okra and more.

Most of the farmers set up on the south side of The Shed, 1010 S. Pearl Expy., in downtown Dallas. For more information, visit DallasFarmersMarket.org.
