Take a bite out of summer at the 2nd Annual Watermelon Festival! The Dallas Farmers Market is kicking off National Farmers Market Week with a Texas-sized celebration!

This year we are back and better than ever with 10 varieties of Texas grown watermelon to try! Get a taste of this season’s heavy hitters – Sugar Babies, Truck Busters, Summer Gold and more. Watermelon eating contests, watermelon bowling, seed spitting contests and classic family favorites will keep the celebration going all day! Enjoy live music, demos, family-friendly activities, tastings and more. Visitors should also bring their market bag, as the weekend market will be in full swing. Farms, ranches, artisanal foods and artisan craft vendors will be in the mix too!
