Dallas Farmers Market Farm Visits
Providing access to fresh, local and authentic food for Texans is the fundamental goal of the Dallas Farmers Market. To ensure the quality of product, validity of growing methods and to learn more about the challenges each farmer or rancher must overcome, the DFM team travels to visit each farmer and rancher accepted into our market. We believe that by learning about our food we are able to form a deeper appreciation for the meals we eat and the people who work to provide them. Join us as we travel across Texas and meet the incredible men and women who work to keep us all fed.

The Locke family, farming 160 acres just 90 minutes from Dallas, raise their cattle, pigs, turkeys and hens in a traditional, non-GMO environment– believing that pasture-raised cattle, chickens, turkeys and pigs are happy animals that produce extremely high-quality and healthy foods and eggs.
