Did you know that Dallas is home to one of the largest urban farms in America? Bonton Farms is located in a food desert in South Dallas, where access to fresh, healthy food is limited, but it has invested in its people to restore health, create jobs, and ignite hope.

Bonton Farms is also home to free-range chickens, goats, turkeys, rabbits, and beehives, providing an abundance of fresh eggs, milk, and honey.

Visitors can savor healthy, local, chef-inspired breakfasts and lunches made with fresh foods from the farms and local partners at the Bonton Market Cafe, as well as choose from a variety of enrichment classes on healthy cooking, financial management, parenting, and much more.

At The Shed at the Dallas Farmers Market, dozens of farmers and ranchers arrive each weekend bearing locally grown fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, honey, bread, cheese, and meat, all seasonal and ready for you to take home to your own kitchen.

These face-to-face interactions and the chance to buy food directly from the people who produce it are reasons that make shopping at the Dallas Farmers Market so special.

Stop by The Shed at the Dallas Farmers Market to support this important initiative, and load up on fresh fruits and vegetables while you’re at it.
